Part 5 Section 72
72   Preparation of plans of management
(1)  The Chief Executive:
(a)  shall cause a plan of management to be prepared for each national park and historic site in existence on the commencement day, as soon as practicable after that day, unless a plan of management was adopted with respect thereto under the Act of 1967,
(b)  shall cause a plan of management to be prepared for each nature reserve in existence on the commencement day, as soon as practicable after that day, unless a scheme of operations was approved with respect thereto under the Fauna Protection Act 1948,
(c)  shall cause a plan of management to be prepared for each historic site, nature reserve, karst conservation reserve or national park reserved after the commencement day, as soon as practicable after the reservation,
(d)  may from time to time cause a plan of management to be prepared for any Aboriginal area, wildlife refuge or wildlife management area, and
(e)  may from time to time, after consulting with the owner, cause a plan of management to be prepared for a conservation area.
(1A)  The Chief Executive is to cause a plan of management to be prepared for each state conservation area, and for each regional park (other than a park that is under the care, control and management of a local council), as soon as practicable after the reservation of the land concerned.
(1B)  If a local council is nominated by the Minister to have the care, control and management of a regional park, the council is to cause a plan of management to be prepared for the regional park as soon as practicable after the reservation of the land concerned.
(1BA)  The responsible authority is to seek the advice of the appropriate regional advisory committee in the preparation of a plan of management, other than a plan of management prepared for lands reserved under Part 4A or lands within Zone 1, 2 or 3 of the Community Conservation Area under the Brigalow and Nandewar Community Conservation Area Act 2005.
Note.
 The responsible authority is to consult with the relevant Community Conservation Advisory Committee established under the Brigalow and Nandewar Community Conservation Area Act 2005 in the preparation of a plan of management for lands within Zone 1, 2 or 3 of the Brigalow and Nandewar Community Conservation Area.
(1C)  A plan of management for lands reserved or dedicated under Part 4A is to be prepared by the board of management for the lands concerned in consultation with the Chief Executive.
(1D)  If a part or parts only of lands listed in Schedule 14 are reserved or dedicated under Part 4A:
(a)  the Chief Executive may prepare a separate plan of management for the part or parts of the lands that are not so reserved or dedicated in accordance with this Part, or
(b)  the Chief Executive and the board of management may agree that the plan of management prepared for the lands reserved or dedicated under Part 4A should extend and apply to the lands that are not so reserved or dedicated in which event the provisions of this Part applying to the preparation of plans of management by boards of management apply to the plan.
(1E)  Subsections (1C) and (1D) do not require a plan of management to be prepared if an existing plan of management is in force when the lands are reserved or dedicated under Part 4A. However, any such existing plan, in so far as it relates to lands reserved or dedicated under Part 4A, must be reviewed by the board of management for the lands concerned within 2 years after the lands are so reserved or dedicated and may be amended, altered or cancelled in accordance with this section.
(1F)  Without limiting subsection (1) (c), in the case of lands for which a plan of management is not in force when the lands are reserved or dedicated under Part 4A, a plan of management is to be prepared by the board of management for the lands within 5 years after that reservation or dedication.
(1G)–(4)    (Repealed)
(5)  This section does not apply to or in respect of a wildlife refuge or conservation area that is comprised wholly or partly of lands within a State forest.
