Summary of the Draft Management Plan

The Draft Management Plan is a high-level policy document rather than a detailed operational plan.

The Draft Management Plan identifies the vision, objectives, policies and development and enhancement priorities for the reserves over the next 10 years.

Developed with comprehensive input from reserve users and stakeholder groups, the Draft Management Plan provides Council with a clear framework for the day-today management and decision-making for the reserves.

The process aims to ensure that management and development of the reserves is based on sound principles and that, through consultation, the aspirations and requests of the community have been clearly identified and considered.
