What is a Management Plan?


What is a management plan under The Commissioner for Kangaroo Island Act?

Management plans are a key mechanism under the Commissioner for Kangaroo Island Act used to assist the Kangaroo Island Commissioner in improving the management, coordination and delivery of infrastructure and services provided by government agencies, and other matters relating to Kangaroo Island.

“Government agencies” are defined under the Commissioner for Kangaroo Island Act as:

 (a) a State authority; or

(b) an agency or instrumentality of the Crown in right of the Commonwealth;

For the preparation of management plans, the Commissioner is responsible for:

  • making proposals in relation to the provision of infrastructure, the effective delivery of services or other matters;
  • identifying priorities to be pursued to implement the proposals; and
  • developing strategies for consulting and engaging with persons or agencies to support the implementation of the proposals.

The public will be invited to make submissions on each management plan before it is adopted and approved by the Governor.
