Reserve Management Plans


Under the Reserves Act 1977, Council is required to develop and review management plans for reserves under its control for the purpose of providing for the use, enjoyment, maintenance, protection, preservation and development of these reserves.

Council has approximately five Reserve Management Plans, many of which were prepared in between 2001 and 2007. Council has commenced the review of its Reserve Management Plans to ensure that the information and guidance these plans provide on the management and vision of reserves for both Council officers and the community is up-to-date and accurate.

This review will take place over the next two years, with user groups and the community having the opportunity to input in to the process.
