Ashfield Council is preparing a Parks Strategy, updating Plans of Management for some parks and writing new Plans for other parks. Plans of Management are ten year documents that are developed with the community to help Council manage parks. This includes strategies for the future use, development and maintenance of park land.
Update May 2016
Council would like to thank residents and stakeholders who participated in our consultation process. Over 180 people participated in our four open house sessions and stakeholder workshop, and over 200 surveys were completed.
Council and the consultants engaged to work with us on this project are currently reviewing all the feedback from the consultation process as part of the development of the draft Parks Strategy and Park Plans of Management.
Residents and stakeholders will have further opportunity to comment on the draft documents via the public exhibition process, which will be advertised on this website as soon as soon as they are available.
Plans of Management are ten year documents that are developed in consultation with community, to help Council manage parks. They guide the maintenance, future use and development of park land.

The Parks Strategy will be an overarching plan to provide consistent guidance on a range of common use and issues, across our parks and reserves.
All parks in the Ashfield Local Government Areas are included in this project. Generally, larger parks and sports grounds have their own Plans of Management. For example, Ashfield, Pratten, Hammond, Centenary and Algie Parks have their own Plans of Management. These will be updated or reviewed, through this process.
Smaller parks and reserves are included in the Small Parks and General Community Use Plan of Management – which is currently being reviewed, as part of this project. New Plans of Management will be written for Darrell Jackson Gardens, Yeo Park, Robson Park, Richard Murden Reserve and Lewis Hermann Reserve through this process.
