The Department is actively engaging with the community and key stakeholders on the Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan (the Plan) from August to December this year, so you can stay informed and play a role in shaping the Plan.
We’re seeking information from you about what you value in your local environment as well as understanding what’s important to you in balancing biodiversity and growth in Western Sydney.
The key outcomes we’re seeking from our early engagement are to:
We invite you to complete our survey to help us understand local conservation sites and priorities and ways to protect and enhance Western Sydney’s important biodiversity values and green spaces.
Your feedback will help us shape a draft Plan for statutory exhibition in 2020. The survey is open until 2 December 2019.
We also invite you to learn more about the Plan and tell us about important natural areas and native animals in your area using our interactive map.
The map will be open for comments until 2 December 2019.

The Department is holding information workshops on the Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan for Aboriginal communities in Western Sydney. These sessions provide an opportunity to help shape and provide feedback for the Plan.
For more information or to register your interest please contact Marcia Ella Consulting via email or on 0498 494 584.
In September 2019, we invited you to come along to an information session on the Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan. Our sessions gave you an opportunity to hear more about the Plan and give us feedback.
An important first step to developing the Plan was initiating a strategic assessment under the Commonwealth EPBC Act.
Between 28 November 2018 and 25 January 2019, we consulted on the draft Terms of Reference for the strategic assessment.
We are currently reviewing the submissions received and will publish the Terms of Reference once finalised.
For more information please contact us online.
