Natural Areas Management Plans Review - Tell us your thoughts!

The City manages six natural areas covering coastal, inland and riverine environments. In conjunction with natural area "Friends of" groups, the City works to manage these areas for their long-term protection, conservation and restoration in accordance with their five-year management plans.

The City has been working with the five 'Friends of' groups to review the current plans which cover the City as a whole, and specific plans for our six individual reserves:

  • Shenton Bushland
  • Allen Park Bushland
  • Hollywood Reserve
  • Birdwood Parade Bushland
  • Point Resolution Bushland
  • Mount Claremont Oval Bushland

We now invite you to provide your thoughts regarding our draft management plans and action plans for natural areas across the City for the next five years to ensure our priorities align with the community and the reserve's best interests.

    Each management plan aims to address key issues for each of the reserves and the City as a whole which the City and the 'Friends of' groups need to focus on for the next five years.

    In addition to providing comment on the entire plan, the City would like to know your thoughts about the priorities going forward.

    These priorities are presented as a summary of actions for each reserve (refer document library).

    Please provide your comments on each of the actions plans by visiting the forum section on this engagement page.

    Please provide your comments on each of the actions plans by visiting the forum section on this engagement page.

    The focus is on improving bushland condition and providing management actions on:

    • Management boundaries
    • Rehabilitation
    • Re-vegetation
    • Weed control
    • Plant pathogen management
    • Fire management
    • Access
    • Community involvement
    • Cultural heritage, interpretation and education
    • Native animals
    • Feral animals

    To assist with the development of the priorities, in Spring 2018 bushland condition and weed surveying was undertaken across all natural areas to develop bushland condition and weed maps which have assisted in prioritising restoration programs.


    The City looks forward to receiving your comments.
