Annual reporting and financial statements are tools that provide a health check on a reserve.
Annual reporting helps to determine whether a CLM’s financial resources are being controlled and managed appropriately. They also enable the department to review the reserve’s operations and identify reserves that may need assistance.
Non-council CLMs are required to submit annual reports each year, as prescribed in the Crown Land Management Regulation 2018.
All non-council CLMs were contacted by the department in mid October 2019 with instructions on how to submit annual reports.
All CLMs are required to keep records relating to the annual report for six years.
Council CLMs must comply with reporting requirements in line with the management of community land, as prescribed in the Local Government Act 1993. Further information is available on the Office of Local Government website.
The minister responsible for Crown land may request information and undertake audits of a CLM at any time.
