NATIONAL ESTATE VALUES


Protection and Management of National Estate Values


  1. Parties endorse the findings of the Commonwealth/NSW joint studies of the National Estate in the Upper North East and Lower North East regions (the Joint Study) and agree that National Estate Values exist as documented in publicly available plots of GIS coverages and the following published documents:

    Upper North East

    (a) Identification, Assessment and Protection of National Estate – Part A Natural Values, Upper North East Region, Environment Australia (1998) (This is the report for two projects: ‘JANIS and Natural National Estate Conservation Requirements for the Upper North East CRA Region’ and ‘Extensive Natural National Estate Values – Upper North East CRA’);

    (b) Places of Geoheritage Significance in NSW CRA Forest Regions, Osborne, R.A.L., Docker, B. and Salem, L. (1998);

    (c) Identification of Places of Natural History Significance in NSW CRA Forest Regions: 2. Sites of Potential National Estate Value, Denny, M. (1998);

    (d) Community Heritage Values Identification and Assessment Project for the Upper and Lower North East Regions, Volumes 1-3, Context Pty Ltd (1998);

    (e) Thematic Forest History and Heritage Assessment (Non-Indigenous) Upper North East and Lower North East Regions, Bickford, A. and Brayshaw, H. (1998);

    (f) Assessment of Places of Aesthetic Significance within the Forested Areas of NSW CRA Regions (Statewide), Stage 2. Upper North East Region, Hibbard, A. (1998).

    Lower North East

    (a) Identification, Assessment and Protection of National Estate – Part A Natural Values, Lower North East Region, Environment Australia (1998) (This reports on the two projects: ‘JANIS and Natural National Estate Conservation Requirements for the Lower North East CRA Region’ and ‘Extensive Natural National Estate Values – Lower North East CRA’);

    (b) Places of Geoheritage Significance in NSW CRA Forest Regions, Osborne, R.A.L., Docker, B. and Salem, L. (1998);

    (c) Identification of Places of Natural History Significance in NSW CRA Forest Regions: 2. Sites of Potential National Estate Value, Denny, M. (1998);

    (d) Community Heritage Values Identification and Assessment Project for the Upper and Lower North East Regions, Volumes 1-3, Context Pty Ltd (1998);

    (e) Thematic Forest History and Heritage Assessment (Non-Indigenous) Upper North East and Lower North East Regions, Bickford, A. and Brayshaw, H. (1998);



    (f) Assessment of Places of Aesthetic Significance within the Forested Areas of NSW CRA Regions (Statewide), Stage 2. Lower North East Region, Hibbard, A. (1998);

  1. Parties recognise that the extensive and systematic information and regional framework provided by the Joint Study and this Agreement provide a unique regional context for National Estate Values in the Upper North East and Lower North East regions.

  2. Parties agree that many of the National Estate Values are adequately reserved in the CAR Reserve System (including its Dedicated Reserve, Informal Reserve and prescription elements). The State will protect in a regional context the full range of National Estate Values on Public Land, through the application of the Forest Management System in accordance with this Agreement, and the implementation of the improvements agreed in Attachment 8.

  3. Parties agree that National Estate Values will be managed on the basis of the following principles:

  • Integrated regional management is the basis for effective conservation of National Estate Values;

  • Protection decisions should be based on the extensiveness of each value within the region, taking into account its abundance, spatial and temporal distribution, spatial characteristics, variation and condition;

  • Protection decisions should not be based on individual expressions of the value in isolation;

  • Protection decisions should consider the sensitivity of each National Estate Value to various types of disturbance, with sensitive natural values having adequate representation in the CAR Reserve System;

  • Management in all Public Land tenures should address National Estate Values and make provision for their maintenance in management plans;

  • Protection of National Estate Values is achieved by the CAR Reserve System and other legislated protection mechanisms and within State forests through statutory management plans and by active management; and

  • It is productive, effective and necessary to work with the community to manage heritage values.

  1. Parties agree that the management of cultural values, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, in the Upper North East region, be undertaken consistent with the guidelines in the Protective Mechanisms for Cultural Heritage – Generic Version and in the Lower North East region consistent with the guidelines in the Protective Mechanisms for Cultural Heritage – Lower North East. The above guidelines are based on the principles of The Burra Charter (The Australia ICOMOS Charter for Places of Cultural Significance) which provides the framework for the protection of cultural heritage sites and places. The Commonwealth acknowledges that the Cultural Heritage Guidelines attached to the IFOA 1999 are consistent with the above guidelines.

  2. Parties agree to maintain the databases of the values identified in the Joint Study and cooperate in relation to access to the Data.

  3. Parties agree that the sensitivity or resilience of each National Estate Value, and the appropriate approach to the management of each value is indicated in Tables 1 and 2 and subject to Attachment 8.
