Final Public Hearing Report – Land Recategorisation Rappville Reserve

Original post:

Richmond Valley Council has prepared a draft Plan of Management for Rappville Reserve, and will hold a public hearing on Wednesday 19 August to discuss proposed changes to land categories in the draft Plan.

What is a Plan of Management?

A Plan of Management governs the management, future use and development of Council-managed community land. It is a requirement of the Local Government Act 1993.

As part of the development of the plan, it is necessary to formally categorise all community land according to Section 36 of the Local Government Act (1993). The land must then be managed in accordance with the core objectives for the relevant category.

This draft Plan of Management incorporates the future use and development of the Rappville Reserve to meet the values and expectations of the community. Future works have been proposed on this land as part of rebuilding the community since the 2019 bushfires devastated the village.

The draft Plan of Management is available here or via a link at the bottom of this page.

The draft Plan of Management is on public exhibition from 16 July to 28 August 2020.
