As a NSW government agency, the Western Sydney Parklands is governed by legislation enacted by the NSW parliament.
Western Sydney Parklands Act 2006
Western Sydney Parklands Act 2006 confirms the boundaries of the Parklands and established the Western Sydney Parklands Trust.
Western Sydney Parklands Regulation Remake
In accordance with Section 5 of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989, the Western Sydney Parklands Trust is currently reviewing and remaking the Western Sydney Parklands Regulation 2013.
The objectives of the Regulation are:
- To create a common sense framework to manage the Parklands and protect its facilities and environment.
- Help people equitably enjoy Parklands facilities, promoting visitor enjoyment and safety in the park
- Provide for organised events and activities in the Parklands and allow the Trust to charge for commercial activities in the Parklands.
The existing regulations are functioning reasonably well and no significant stakeholder concerns have been raised with the existing arrangements. However, updates are required to improve the management of contemporary issues in park management such as the management of events and related security issues as well as a review of penalty notice values to improve consistency with other agencies.
Public consultation has closed on 19 July. Submissions are currently being reviewed and final regulations will be published on our website shortly.
