Recreation in Natural Areas Strategy

Ku-ring-gai Council is reviewing its Recreation in Natural Areas Strategy to help us manage the way people use our natural areas for recreation, for activities such as walking, trail running, rock climbing, abseiling, bouldering, mountain biking, orienteering and trekking.

The Strategy aims to support a diverse and accessible range of recreation opportunities within our natural areas in a way that protects and enhances our local environment.

What’s happening now?

In August 2018 we conducted four consultation workshops with individuals and groups who undertake recreational activities in our natural areas. The workshops focused on:

  • Orienteering and rogaining
  • Track dependent recreation (trail running, walking etc..)
  • Mountain biking
  • Rock climbing, abseiling and bouldering.

Have your say

We are now seeking input from individuals and groups with a strong interest in the Strategy from an environmental perspective.

Input will be sought through an online survey and consultation workshop, to be held in mid-November 2018.

To register your interest in participating in the consultation process, please complete the EOI form.

Please register your interest by midnight on Wednesday 24 October 2018.

Following the targeted consultation sessions, the draft Strategy will be presented at a community forum in early 2019. The Strategy will also be placed on public exhibition prior to its adoption by Council, offering another chance for the community to provide feedback. The whole process should be completed by March 2019.
