Heres an interesting section:

NATIONAL PARKS ACT 1975 - SECT 17B
Management plans
    (1)     The Secretary must, within two years of the inclusion of each wilderness park in Schedule Two A, prepare a management plan in respect of the park which must be consistent with the principles set out in this Division for the management of wilderness parks.

So basically Lysterfield last had a management plan in 1998, which was apparently "reviewed in 2009 for a further 5 years" (which is probably being pretty generous  :)). So its a plan thats almost 20 years old, bears scant resemblance to the park and it current users and is out of jurisdiction by at least 12 months. Righhhht....

Hi Al,

Lystie would be managed under section 18 by my reckoning. It's an 'other park' as defined in schedule 3 of the act. The green wedge protection provisions would also apply as set out in the Planning & Environment Act 1987.  See attached XLS.  It is collated from the Land Victoria site (LASSI) and shows the different designations of the various parts of 'the park'.

The 'Green Wedge' provisions seem to more strongly support 'public use' of these reserves.

Also, see attached an interesting record of the history of Police Paddocks.  Tracking down documents like this can save a lot of work when it comes to validating claims related to historic land usage. Can't attach, because it's too big - try this link: http://vhd.heritagecouncil.vic.gov.au/places/13456 and the other because it's an XLS. I'll flick it to you in an email.
