Draft Open Space Plan

Consultation is now closed.

This consultation ran from 11 May to 22 June 2016 


Manager – Open Space
Ph: (02) 9911 3566


 On 6 November 2006 Council resolved that:-

"The General Manager be requested to report back to Council with an Open Space and Recreation Plan integrating the Bushland Plan of Management, Estuary Management Plan, Golf Course Plan of Management, Playground Strategy, and to establish overriding principles for a Sport and Recreation Plan and Plan of Management for Blackman Park."

An Open Space Plan was subsequently developed which set out guiding principles for a number of key themes to reinforce the main direction for the planning and management of Lane Cove's Open Spaces (parks and playgrounds, sporting areas, bushland, streetscapes and urban spaces).  This was adopted on 5 November 2007.

In September 2014 preliminary community consultation was undertaken to allow Council to identify community needs and assess requirements in terms of changing demographics and expected population growth over the next 10 years in relation to Open Space. 


Council is currently consulting with the community on a new Draft Open Space Plan which provides a 10 year overarching plan which will filter down into new and renewed plans for the various aspects of open space in Lane Cove.  It has been prepared to align with other strategic plans that Council has in place and includes key themes to reinforce the main direction for the planning and management of Open Space and to guide existing and future strategies and actions

The consultation is designed to determine whether the values, key themes, goals and actions within the Draft Open Space Plan are appropriate.  All feedback received will be utilised to refine the plan's content.
