Councils are required under the Local Government Act 1993 to classify all land owned or managed by Council, including Crown Land, as community or operational land. The majority of land managed by Council is community land, which is dedicated for community uses such as parks, natural areas and sportsgrounds.
All community land must be managed in accordance with a Plan of Management. Plans of Management identify land use categories, the important features of the land and any buildings or improvements, outline how Council will manage the land and specify how the land and any buildings may be used or developed (including leasing and licensing).
At the bottom of this page, you can find the current plans of management.
Council has recently undertaken reviews of its plans of management. A large number of plans of management are on public exhibition until April 9 2020, they can be viewed here.
