Council will begin preparing draft Plans of Management for 46 reserves we manage under the Crown Land Management Act 2016. The development process for Crown land will be completed in three stages:
- Stage 1: Prelliminary Community Consultation
- Stage 2: Preparing Draft Plans of Management that Council resolves to exhibit for public comment subject to approval by the Minister for Industry
- Stage 3: Exhibiting - each Draft Plan that has Ministerial approval will be placed on public exhibition so a report on the community's feedback can be reported to Council and the Minister.
Stage 1 will begin during June/July 2019. Information about each reserve will be available on Council's website for the public to review. The information will propose one or more community land categories for each reserve. Feedback from the preliminary community consultation stage will inform a future draft Plan of Management.
We envision that most Crown Reserves will be included in a future Generic Crown Land Plan of Managment. Some reserves, however, will have their own site specific PoMs developed.
Preliminary consultation will help inform Council's determination on this matter. Council will be contacting stakeholders, community organisations and volunteer groups about how they use crown land.
Councils are required to have Plans of Management in place that comply with the Crown Land Management Act by 30 June 2021.
A report on the process is available on Council's website.
We own land that has been classified as Community Land in accordance with the Local Government Act 1993. We also manage some Crown Land in accordance with the Crown Lands Management Act 2016.
To assist in the management of Crown Land and Community Land, we have adopted the Plans of Management (PoM) shown at the bottom of this page.
Plans of Managment on exhibition can be accessed on our Have Your Say Page.
