Management of Greenways
The Greenways are managed through the s.355 Greenways Management Committee (see more below) of the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (QPRC).
Principles for management of the Greenways
- That environmental protection be observed in relation to the management and administration of the Greenways;
- That the Greenways (both land and its other resources) be used and managed as a sustainable resource, and;
- That multiple use and enjoyment of the greenways be encouraged.
Objectives of the s.355 Greenways Management Committee
In providing for the good management of the Greenway and in carrying out duties, the committee has the following objectives:
- To encourage and otherwise ensure the conservation of natural flora and fauna, to raise public awareness of the importance of the Greenways and to encourage any community participation in any actions required in the Management Plan;
- Use of the Greenways in accordance with the Management Plan;
- To minimise the effect of trampling and soil erosion caused by user groups;
- To deter the introduction and spread of feral plants and animals;
- To protect the waterways, ephemeral or permanent;
- To protect all identified significant areas or sites, whether environmental or cultural;
- To provide and maintain the amenity of the Greenways for the enjoyment of the community.
