What is a plan of management?

    A plan of management is a document developed to guide how a park or reserve may be used, managed and developed.  It establishes directions for planning; identifies permissible uses, leases and licences; and prioritises future development.  The Local Government Act 1993 and Crown Land Management Act 2016 require a Plan of Management for all community land.

    What is the process for developing a plan of management?

    The first stage of the process it to simply gather ideas, opinions, values and suggestions.   Feedback will inform the development of a draft plan which will then be presented to the Council to endorse the public exhibition of the document.  The public exhibition stage gives the community a final opportunity to comment on the plan.  All formal submissions will then be considered by Council and the necessary amendments made before final adoption by Council.
