Council would like to thank the community for their feedback on the two Draft Bushland Strategic Management Plans. Consultation closed on 22 March 2021 and the finalised plans were endorsed by Council at the Ordinary Meeting on 17 June 2021. A copy of the plans can be found on Council’s website or in the Documents section of this page.

Council has 178 bushland reserves covering an area of 3,469ha and the bushland reserves protect a diversity of vegetation types including rainforest, open forest, woodlands, coastal heath and wetlands. The reserves provide habitat for many fauna species including Koalas and Glossy-black Cockatoos. They are a great asset to the Noosa community supporting nature based activities as well as providing scenic amenity to the shire.

The Draft Bushland Reserve Strategic Management Plan 2021-2026 identifies reserves that are a priority for environmental management. Management actions focus on protecting and enhancing vegetation and habitat on reserves with the most significant environmental and community values

The Draft Bushland Reserve Strategic Fire Management Plan 2021 identifies priority reserves for fire management actions based on a comprehensive bushfire risk assessment across all 178 reserves. Actions include fire trail works, planned burns and collaborative working arrangements with neighbours and other government agencies.
