Plans of Management for Crown Land

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


Our area has over 30 Crown reserves which are owned by the NSW Government and managed by Council.

The Crown Land Management Act 2016 which came into force in July 2018 imposes various requirements on councils, including a requirement that councils adopt Plans of Management for all Crown reserves for which they are the appointed Crown land manager and that are classified as community land under the Local Government Act 1993.

To meet these obligations, we will be preparing a new suite of Plans of Management that address relevant Crown reserves. Some of the required Plans will be entirely new while others will replace existing Council Plans of Management. Some Plans will cover multiple open space areas, others will address just one park or reserve.


We have created this page so you can:

  • learn about how we are managing Crown lands
  • stay up to date with our progress, and
  • share your views on the new draft Plans of Management as they are prepared

When we are preparing a completely new PoM (rather than replacing an existing PoM), we will employ an online survey to find out:

  • how people use the park
  • what issues need addressing, and
  • opportunities for further enhancement

The information gathered from the survey will inform the draft PoM.

When each new draft PoM is complete, public exhibition will occur and community comment will be sought - refer to list below. All feedback will be reported to Council and appropriate amendments based on this feedback will be made prior to adopting the final PoM.
