Under the Crown Land Management Act 2016 (CLM Act), Blue Mountains City Council (Council) has been appointed ‘Crown Land Manager’ to 145 crown reserves. Council also manages many sites of Council Community land.

In the role of Crown Land Manager, Council must manage these reserves as if they are ‘public land’ under the Local Government Act 1993 (LG Act). Council has classified these sites as Community Land. Land categories such as Park, Sportsground, General Community Use or Natural Area (with sub-categories of bushland, escarpment, watercourse, wetland or foreshore) have been applied where appropriate. These categories were applied using existing Council GIS (Geographical Information System) mapping.

The new draft Plans of Management documents describe the current condition and use of the sites, permit appropriate activities and lease/licenses and describes how the site is being managed according to the objectives of each category.

This public exhibition period is opportunity for the community and interested parties to read the draft documents and supply comment via submission.
