Crown Land Plans of Management – Community Land

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council is updating Plans of Management for parks and reserves in the Hawkesbury as a result of the legislation changes to the Crown Land Management Act 2016.

Most parks and reserves will be covered under a generic Plan of Management. This means that one plan will cover multiple reserves and will address broad objectives and management actions.

Some parks will be covered by site specific Plans of Management where there are complex management issues that need to be addressed or where heritage or environmental significance have been identified. Further information about particular site-specific plans of management can be found on Council’s Your Hawkesbury Your Say consultation page, under individual project banners. Parks that will be covered by site specific plans include: McQuade Park, Windsor; Macquarie Park, Freemans Reach; McMahons Park, Kurrajong; and Yarramundi Reserve, Yarramundi.

Developing Plans of Management does not represent a formal commitment to funding. The plans will be guiding documents; their main purpose is to consider and allow for appropriate usage and to prioritise potential capital works projects to further the recreational opportunities of the site whilst ensuring all values are protected.

We would like your feedback on our parks to assist us to develop our generic Plan of Management.

Community consultation is a vital part of the planning process. Please see details in the news feed regarding opportunities to provide input.
