Under the Crown Land Management Act 2016 (CLM Act), Blue Mountains City Council (Council) has been appointed ‘Crown Land Manager’ for the Crown reserves of Blaxland Oval, Warrimoo Oval and Katoomba Showground.

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 Blaxland Oval, Warrimoo Oval and Katoomba Showground as Community Land. The category of Sportsground has been applied to all three sites and other categories, such as Park, General Community Use or Natural Area (with sub-category of bushland, escarpment, watercourse, wetland or foreshore) have been applied where appropriate. These categories were applied using existing Council GIS (Geographical Information System) mapping.

Blaxland Oval, Warrimoo Oval and Katoomba Showground are three public recreation reserves with district standard sportsgrounds. These sportgrounds are managed and maintained by Blue Mountains City Council as the appointed Crown Land Manager.

These draft Plans of Management documents are designed to meet the essential requirements of 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 provided opportunity for the community and interested parties to read the draft documents and supply comment via submission.
