Determining most appropriate use

This paper explains the principles to apply in evaluating an area of land to determine its ‘most appropriate use’. Although this exercise is best known as part of the process of allocating State land, the concepts can usefully be applied during other procedures such as writing reserve management plans or designating land in planning schemes; and for resources other than land.
