Bushland & Fauna Plans

In 1995, North Sydney Council adopted a generic Plan of Management for all Bushland Reserves which considered the broad issues involved and suggested processes to overcome and manage any threats.

The Bushland Plan of Management is cyclically updated. 

In early 2002, Bushland Rehabilitation Plans for Middle Harbour and Port Jackson catchments were created, plus similar Fauna Rehabilitation Plans. The aim is to achieve specific goals for each reserve by looking at individual issues within each of these areas and devising ways to limit the threats, conserve existing biodiversity, and rehabilitate degraded areas.

View these plans below.

In 2015, these plans are being updated to reflect gains that have been made in bushland conditions since their inception and developments in bush regeneration practices that have occurred over the past 13 years. Draft plans will be available for community input toward the end of 2015.

Creating these Plans was made possible by funding from Council's Environmental Levy.
