What is a Plan of Management?

A plan of management is a document that defines the value, use, management practices and intent for the public purpose for which the land has been reserved.

Bondi Park, Beach and Pavilion

Bondi Park, Beach and Pavilion Plan of Management (BPBP PoM 2014) was developed through research and public consultation including the public exhibition period, before being adoption by Council in November 2014. Since the adoption of the BPBP PoM Council has improved the park and beach.

Since Council’s adoption of the BPBP PoM 2014, Crown Lands updated the Crown Land Management Act 2016 (CLM Act), which came into effect in June 2018. In October 2020, Council resolved to update a priority list of Plans of Management (PoM) to comply with the new CLM Act, of which BPBP PoM was identified as the top priority. In line with the Council resolution, the plan of management has been updated in draft format. The most significant changes are the inclusion of ‘express authorisation’ for future leases and licences for the land and land categorisation, as the BPBP PoM must comply with the provisions of the Local Government Act (LG Act). For more details on the legislative requirements and changes to the BPBP PoM, please refer to the Council report.

Council and Crown Lands have approved the updated BPBP PoM, the plan must be now made available for the community to review and provide feedback during a pubic exhibition period, before the plan is updated and adopted by Council.
