Crown Land reserves throughout Victoria have historically been managed by Committees of Management or in the case of Walhalla, a Board of Management. Members are appointed under the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978 for a period of three years to manage the reserves on behalf of the Minister for Environment Land, Water and Planning. The role of Crown land reserve committees of management is formally defined in section 15 of the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978 to “manage, improve, maintain and control” the reserve for the purposes for which it is reserved.
DELWP, as the delegate for the Minister for Environment and Climate Action, has announced the appointment of Directors to the Walhalla Board of Management Incorporated for the upcoming term.
