The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has released a Statement of Management Intent that outlines the main values, issues, management directions and priorities of the NPWS for managing Malabar Headland National Park.

This statement, together with relevant NPWS policies, will guide the management of the park until a plan of management has been prepared in accordance with the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 (NPW Act).

The statement contains a great deal of information about the park. It is an excellent summary of the park’s main features and values and the issues that need to be addressed to protect it and ensure it can best be appreciated by the community.

For parks and reserves currently without a plan of management (exhibited draft or adopted), a statement of management intent gives information about the basic management principles and priorities in the period before a plan of management is developed.

Statements of Management Intent for all NSW parks and reserves currently without a plan of management are available on the NPWS web site.
