PUBLIC EXHIBITION DATES

Opens Wednesday 8 December 2021

Under the Crown Land Management Act 2016 (CLM Act), Blue Mountains City Council (Council) has been appointed ‘Crown Land Manager’ to 145 crown reserves, including Blackheath Memorial Park, Knapsack Reserve, Lapstone Oval and Pulpit Rock.

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 Blackheath Memorial Park, Knapsack Reserve, Lapstone Oval and Pulpit Rock 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.

Blackheath Memorial Park, Knapsack Reserve and Lapstone Oval had previous plans but the new CLM Act has meant that these plans no longer met legislative requirements. The new draft Plans of Management documents have been developed in accordance with the CLM Act and the LG Act. They 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.
