Biodiversity Management Plan

The aim of the Biodiversity Management Plan is to identify strategies and prioritised actions by which Council can better monitor, protect and manage biodiversity assets within the Bathurst Region.

This aim is to be achieved with the adoption of a number of project objectives, these being:

  • Improve the integration of biodiversity conservation into land use planning instruments and the development assessment process;
  • Protect and enhance the biodiversity of natural areas on land under Council care and control;
  • Identify priority conservation areas and biodiversity values to be maintained and restored across all land tenures;
  • Provide strategies to improve community awareness as well as encourage and
  • Support community participation in biodiversity conservation;
  • Be guided by national, state and regional targets;
  • Improve biodiversity knowledge and data management within the Bathurst Region.
