Urban bushland has survived for a variety of reasons. In some cases Sydney bushland is protected from possible development, but many stands do not enjoy protection under the planning process. Urban bushland is valued for a range of different purposes and if it is to survive then its permissible uses must satisfy community expectations. While conservation must be given priority in some circumstances, the management of many stands will need to accommodate multiple uses. Questions which need to be addressed in developing a long-term strategy for management are raised, and the urgency of attaining community agreement on the answers is stressed.
