In accordance with Ministerial conditions attached to the Forest Management Plan 2004-2013, the Conservation Commission has undertaken a mid-term audit of performance of the plan.  The purpose of the audit is to assess the extent to which management of land to which the plan applies has been undertaken in accordance with the plan.   The audit report provides information on the status of implementation of actions proposed in the FMP, the extent to which key performance indicator targets have been achieved and the outcomes of audits and compliance monitoring undertaken as part of the implementation of the plan. Some of the key FMP actions addressed in the audit include progress of implementation of formal reserves proposed under the Protecting our old-growth forests policy; implementation of fauna habitat zones; the annual removals of wood products compared to the sustained yield estimated by the plan; soil management; and the management of the effects of climate change on forest ecosystems. The audit has been submitted to the Environmental Protection Authority for review and has been released for a three month public comment period.   Organisations or individuals interested in commenting on the mid-term audit report are invited to provide comment in writing or by email, by 30 June 2009, to:

 - Forest Management Plan 2014 - 2023 Environmental Scoping Document

Each ten year period, as required by the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984, a new management plan for the south west of Western Australia is required. The Conservation Commission and the Department of Environment and Conservation have commenced the process for the development of the next Forest Management Plan which will apply for the period 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2023.

An environmental Scoping Document has been prepared in accordance with Western Australian Government procedures and released for public review. The Environmental Scoping Document describes the proposal, summarises current knowledge about the area, identifies environmental issues associated with the proposal and further works to be carried out and provides an outline of the contents for the Public Environmental Review (PER).
