Managing community land

Generic plan of management

Council boundary changes in 2004 resulted in 3 different plans of management for each of the former local government areas now being managed by the City. The former plans were consolidated and updated as part of the City's Generic Plan of Management (download below) that provides more information about the City's objectives, operational plan and performance measurement.

The generic plan of management is made up of the main document and the following appendices:

  • appendices A and B list properties by suburb then the site or property name in alphabetical order
  • appendix C identifies dual-category land
  • appendix D provides detailed individual property sheets.

Open space and recreation needs study

This study aims to help the City deliver a cohesively linked, well-managed system of open space, sporting and recreation facilities to meet a range of recreational needs over the next 10 to 20 years.

The open space and recreation needs study (download below) provides the City and other stakeholders with the framework and strategic direction to further develope and enhance open space and recreation facilities in the local area.

Policies and strategies

The City's companion animals policy and our tree management policies also relate to parks and open spaces. Go to our Pets and the city and Tree policies pages listed at the end of this page.
