- creek corridors
- urban habitat
- conservation coastal foreshores
- drainage reserves

Previously, much of Council’s knowledge on effective resource management was covered in a range of management plans, strategies, databases, working procedures and within the personal knowledge of past and present Council officers.
Effective management of conservation land requires a set of principles for a coordinated approach to improve biodiversity services, environmental planning and operational management.
