The Council Roadside Reserves (CRR) Project was established to build the capacity of councils to assist them with embedding natural assets within roadside reserves into their Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework. Funded by the NSW Environmental Trust and managed by LGNSW, the project developed resources to assist councils to manage their roadside reserves.

The CRR project included a contestable grants component with 19 projects  funded and successfully completed. The projects trialled resources developed through the program, including the Council Roadside Environmental Management Framework, Roadside Vegetation Management Plan template and the Rapid Assessment Methodology (RAM). Feedback from councils on completion of their projects informed the development of the final Council Roadside Reserve environmental management resources.
