Community Land

"Community Land" is Local Government land classified as community land under Chapter 11 of the Local Government Act 1999 (the Act). Councils must adopt a Community Land Management Plan (CLMP), in line with s196 of the Act, for each parcel of Community Land owned by or under the care and control of the Council.

The District Council of Grant (Council) is currently undertaking a major review of all of it's Community Land Management Plans. This process will be ongoing throughout the majority of 2021 and will involve several steps. One of those steps is consultation with our community. As each CLMP becomes available for consultation, it will be uploaded to this page for feedback and comment by members of the community.

Council encourages feedback from both individuals and groups, both within the relevant community and from further afield who may have an interest in or who utilise the area. Please download, or collect from either Council’s principal office or the Port MacDonnell Community Complex, a copy of the draft CLMP prior to submitting your feedback.
