Council Roadside Reserves Training

The Council Roadside Reserves (CRR) Project, funded by the NSW Environmental Trust and managed by LGNSW, was developed to build the capacity of NSW councils to improve the management of roadside environmental values and to integrate their management into existing council plans and operations.

Developed specifically for councils to guide them through the complexities of roadside reserve management, these four e-learning modules will raise learners’ awareness of their responsibilities when it comes to managing and working in the road reserve and ensuring roadside environmental management best practice.

Module 1 is focused on “why” roadside environmental management is important and provides an overview to operational staff as well as team leaders, general managers and councillors.

Modules 2, 3 and 4 focus more on “how” to undertake good roadside environmental management in practice. These modules focus on learning outcomes for a range of staff, including minor works and maintenance staff, engineers, strategic planners and environment staff.
