Kiama Council has prepared a plan of management for reserves it manages on behalf of the NSW Government (council managed crown land).These 18 reserves include Saddleback Mountain, Blowhole Point, Kiama Showground, Gerringong Harbour and Seven Mile Beach. The plan of management sets out what each reserve can be used for, what (if any) development can occur and what leases and licences are allowed. This also helps Council define the planning, resource management and maintenance required. The plan of management was developed following significant consultation with precinct committees, tourism and business groups as well as the wider community. We also conducted an online survey to capture what people think is important about these places and how they should be managed. The plan has been reviewed by Council and the NSW Government, Council is now seeking community feedback before it receives final approval. Submissions can be made until 5pm, Sunday 23 April via Council’s website.
