Plans Of Management
Plans of Management are generally directed towards the sustainable management of public lands.
A plan of management is required for the development, lease or licensing of land classified as "community land" under the Local Government Act 1993. Council has prepared a plan of management for community land that sets out the broad parameters for the use and development of all community land within the Shire. This plan also addresses issues that pertain to some specific parcels of community land.
Many of the public parks and ovals and caravan parks within the Shire are on Crown Land that have been reserved for public recreation and for which Council has been appointed the Trust Manager. A number of plans of management have been prepared for such parcels of land under the Crown Lands Act 1989 and approved by the Minister for Lands.
Crown land plans of management are usually only prepared in respect of sensitive sites where there are significant community or environmental issues that need to be addressed and resolved. Probably the most significant plan of management for Crown Land in the Shire is the plan that applies to the coastal Crown Land between East Ballina and Lennox Head.
