Community Land 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. Freehold titled land owned by Council is not included in the definition and therefore exempt from the provisions of the Act.

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

The Act requires Council to have a community land register and management plans for community land.


What is a Community Land Management Plan (CLMP)?


A CLMP 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.


What is the purpose of a Community Land Management Plan?


It provides a framework for Council to manage and develop, for the enjoyment and well-being of residents, recreational and leisure activities on community land.

It allows Council to program and manage the maintenance of community land in a proper and orderly manner.
