Managing the Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan

Jun 26
Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan


The Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan is being developed for Western Sydney. The Plan will identify how any impacts to biodiversity from projected growth in Western Sydney will be addressed. In doing so, it will help strike the balance between delivering positive environmental outcomes and supporting appropriate development over the next 37 years.
The Department of Planning and Environment have evolved the plan over the past 12 months in response to project and user needs and dependent variables. The project management tools supporting this development have also changed to meet these varied needs. Steve Hartley, Director of Policy, at Office of Environment and Heritage NSW will share the lessons they have learnt in finding the best project management tools to suit this complex project environment.
