You are invited to share your views on the proposed changes to the Coorong National Park Management Plan 1990.
The Coorong National Park Management Plan states that existing lease holders will be granted life tenure for shacks in the park and once the lease expires, the shacks will be handed back to government and the shacks will be removed.
The proposed amendments aim to support the SA Government’s commitment to create new opportunities for families to retain shacks on Crown land and in national parks, as part of vibrant holiday communities.
Other management plans with proposed amendments as part of the Retaining Shacks commitment include:
- Innes National Park Management Plan 2003
- Little Dip Conservation Park Management Plan 1992
- Parks of the Coffin Bay Area Management Plan 2004 (incorporates Kellidie Bay Conservation Park)
The proposed amendments to Park Management Plans relate to 85 shacks in national parks:
- 62 in the Coorong National Park,
- 20 in Innes National Park,
- 2 in Kellidie Bay Conservation Park, and,
- 1 in Little Dip Conservation Park.
More information on the delivery of the Retaining Shacks commitment can be found on the Department for Environment and Water Retaining Shacks page.
