Open space strategies and plans of management

Council is responsible for the management of more than 10,000 ha of open space, helping residents and visitors fulfil their recreation and relaxation needs.

This includes open space such as beaches, bushland, parks, playgrounds, riverside reserves and playing fields for sport. It also includes the publicly accessible areas of road reserves adjoining the Clarence River and its tributaries.

Council uses a number of Strategies and Plans of Management to provide the structure for the management and development of open space. In a broad sense, strategies set out the philosophy and framework for open space/recreation initiatives (or policy) while plans of management set out the manner in which specific objectives are to be achieved on the ground (i.e. implementation/action plans).
