We prepare Plans of Management (POMs) for all community land and often prepare them for significant Crown reserves.
The way community land can be used and managed is strictly governed by an adopted POM.
POMs categorise the land, authorise the granting of leases or licenses and provide a set of management strategies. Detail describing development, existing use and future use of the land may also be required depending on the type of plan.
Generic POMs include a number of land parcels all with a common purpose such as sportsground or neighbourhood park.
Specific Area POMs provide management objectives for one contiguous area of land. These often have unique management objectives and high recreational and/or environmental values.
Plans of Management take a values based approach to land planning and management. The key values, role and purpose of the land are identified so that these assets can be protected and enhanced.
All POMs go to public consulation before they are adopted by Council.
All adopted Plans of Management are available for viewing at Dee Why Library and are available for purchase from the Customer Service Centre, Civic Centre, Dee Why. Electronic versions are available, where possible, as PDF files. For information call 9942 2716.
