Draft forest management plan 2024-2033 32.22 MB

This draft plan has been prepared by the Conservation and Parks Commission, in accordance with the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984.

Under the draft plan, at least 400,000 hectares of karri, jarrah and wandoo forests will become nature reserves, national parks or conservation parks, meaning nearly two million hectares of native forests will be protected into the future.

A forest management plan provides the overall policy framework for protecting and managing forests on public lands in our south-west. It aims to incorporate a range of management activities to help conserve biodiversity, provide for recreation, tourism and other forest uses, and to protect water catchments.

The draft plan has been referred to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) for its consideration of a level of assessment in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act 1986.

Following the public comment period, a final plan will be prepared considering all submissions received. A summary of submissions will be made available along with the final Forest management plan 2024-2033.
