Community Land Management Plan

Community Land

Section 193 of the Local Government Act 1999 (the Act) classifies Community Land as all Local Government land (except roads) owned by Council or under Council care, control and management. 

Community Land Management Plan

Council has a responsibility to care for and preserve all the land within its control. The Act places obligations and responsibilities on Council's Community Land for the current and future benefit of the community. Section 196 stipulates the requirement for Council to prepare and adopt a Community Land Management Plan.

Community Land Management Plans describe the location and purpose of all Community Land and how Council intends to manage the land. Where Council are the Custodian of Community Land owned by the Crown, it is held in trust and Council must ensure the Plan stipulates ownership details, including any provisions that may apply, i.e. dedicated recreational purpose. As far as practicable, the Plan must be consistent with other Council plans and policies with regard to conservation, development and use of the land.

The Act does not require separate management plans for each piece of community land. Council has therefore grouped the land under categories so that it can be managed efficiently and effectively. The parcels of land grouped together under these categories have very similar purposes, objectives, management policies, performance targets and measures.

The Community Land Management Plan was adopted by Council on the 23 January 2019.
