Community Land Management Plans

All local government land, except roads, which is owned by Council or under our care and control (ie Crown Land) is classified as community land unless Council has resolved to exclude it from its community land status.

As required under the Local Government Act 1999 Council must prepare and adopt a Community Land Management Plan for all community land.

The Community Land Management Plans group community land parcels into a hierarchy of categories based on similar purposes, such as sportsgrounds, local parks, windbreak reserves and natural bushland. The plans detail how Council will develop, manage and maintain the land held for the community’s use and enjoyment.

As per requirements under the Local Government Act 1999, Council has commenced the periodical review of all Community Land Management Plans. The anticipated timeframe for completion is mid-2023. During the review the plans will be updated to ensure all community land reflects the current land use. For clarity, this review is not about changing the use of community land, but rather ensuring all parcels classified as community land (in excess of 1000) are captured and categorised appropriately.

Public consultation is now open

City of Playford is conducting public consultation on its periodic update of the Community Land Management Plans (CLMPs) as required by the Local Government Act (1999).

CLMPs are a set of documents which outline the purpose of
community land allotments and how Council manages this land.

The outcomes of the periodic update are:

- An audit of all parcels of land owned by or under the care and control of Council.

- Refining of the CLMP categories to best reflect land use.

- Addition of new parcels of land to the register.

- Allocation of each parcel of community land to the appropriate CLMP.

- Ensuring the updated plans accurately capture all parcels of land and reflect their purpose.

No community land has had its purpose or use changed as part of this update. The updated draft CLMPs are now available for viewing and feedback HERE.

Feedback closes at 5pm, 8 August 2023.
