Hugh Bamford Reserve and Williams Park Plan of Management

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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

In 2018, Council resolved (CM/7.15/18.04) to prepare a Plan of Management for Hugh Bamford Reserve and Williams Park which has been reserved for the use of ‘public recreation’. In line with the Council resolution and an initial stage of community consultation in March and April 2019, a draft plan was prepared.

The draft plan was made available for community and stakeholder and Crown Land consultation from the 22 August to 3 October 2019. In light of the feedback on the draft Plan of Management, the plan was updated.

At the request of Crown Lands, the most significant change to the draft plan was the inclusion of ‘express authorisation’ for future leases and licences for the land. In order for Council to finalise the plan, it was placed on public exhibition from the 12 February to 26 March 2020.

No objections were made to the Plan of Management or the Express Authorisation of leases and licences. Following public exhibition, the plan was finalised and adopted by Council on 2 June 2020.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey about the Draft Plan of Management for Hugh Bamford Reserve and Williams Park.

    In recent months, Waverley Council consulted with the community and worked with a consultant, Environmental Partnership, to develop a Draft Plan of Management for the Hugh Bamford Reserve and Williams Park precinct.  The Draft Plan retains existing key infrastructure, such as the training oval at Hugh Bamford Reserve and the 9-hole Golf Course on Williams Park – as well as incorporating enhancements.

    A Plan of Management provides an overview or guide to the sustainable use, improvement, maintenance and management of public land. The Plan provides directions and identifies important actions.

    Please read the Draft Plan of Management – at least the 11-page summary document – prior to completing this survey.  These documents can be found in the document library to the right of this web page.

    The information you provide will be used by Waverley Council and Environmental Partnership/Micromex Research for research purposes only and will be treated in the strictest confidence.
