Have your say on the draft Parks of the Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta Precinct Draft Management Plan.

What's being decided?

The Parks of the Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta Precinct Draft Management Plan has been developed to outline the objectives and strategies that will set the direction for the long-term management of:

  • Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta
  • Hallett Cove Conservation Park
  • Marino Conservation Park.

We want your input into the draft plan to facilitate community input into the management of the parks

The feedback received will be collated and analysed and used in the development of the final plan which will be submitted to the Minister for Environment and Water for adoption.

Background

Park management plans are the primary public accountability document for each of South Australia’s parks. Management plans set strategic direction, and explain how parks are managed.

Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta is South Australia’s newest metropolitan national park following its proclamation in May 2020. In accordance with Section 38 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972, the Minister for Environment and Water must prepare a plan of management as soon as practicable after the constitution of a reserve.

This draft management plan was developed with input from the Glenthorne Partnership, community leaders, technical experts, and interested members of the public who contributed their views during the development of the Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta Master Plan.

Incorporating these parks into a single park management plan supports the South Australian Government vision for a coordinated and consistent approach to park management across the Glenthorne Precinct, a 1,500-hectare network of open space including Happy Valley Reservoir and areas of the Field River Valley.
