Council Crown land manager

Every local council in NSW participates in the management of Crown reserves as an appointed CLM. Together, councils manage more than 6,000 Crown reserves. In many cases, councils also rely on volunteer groups and individuals to provide management support.

Guidance materials

A series of guidelines and templates have been developed to assist councils to classify, categorise and prepare plans of management for Crown reserves for which council is assigned as Crown land manager. To access the templates and guidelines refer to the Template and guides section.

More detailed information for Council CLMs is available on the Office of Local Government website.

Council CLM reserves portal

The Council CLM reserves portal allows councils to:

  • Search and view reserve data such as reserve types, purpose and management type
  • Download the data for use in desktop spatial applications such as ArcMap and MapInfo
  • Gain insight into the distribution of council managed reserves.
