Community Land Register and Management Plans

What is Community Land?

The Local Government Act defines community land as land (other than roads) owned by Council or under Council's care, control and management. 

The Act places obligations and responsibilities on Council's community land for the current and future benefit of the community.

Council manages the above community land parcels through its 8 Community Land Management Plans.

What is a Community Land Management Plan? (CLMP)

A CLMP provides a framework for Council to maintain and develop its community land to maximise its use by the community for recreational and leisure activities. Each plan contains the following information:

  • Identity of the land and the owner
  • Purpose for which it is held
  • Objectives, policies and proposals of how the land is managed
  • Performance targets and the measurement of performance against objectives and targets
  • Nature of any trust, dedication or restriction
  • Any requirement placed on the land by the owner.

A CLMP should be consistent with Council/Government policies, plans and development of the land.
