Council Land Management
Fraser Coast Reserves
The Council manages a large number of reserves throughout the Fraser Coast region. These come in all shapes and sizes and include local road reserves and over 700 parcels of state land for which Council is responsible as the Trustee.
Some of these have areas developed as parks, recreation areas, sports fields or other community uses whilst others are natural bushland areas that provide important habitat for native animals and plants. Reserve areas can be leased out to third parties for various purposes such as sports or grazing.
Residents and visitors are requested to refrain from interfering with vegetation, dumping rubbish including garden waste or unauthorised entry using motor vehicles in Council reserve areas. These activities cause major degradation of natural values through erosion, creation of fire hazards and weed infestation and are offences under the Parks and Reserves local law.
Petrie Park Tiaro - Land Management Plan
The Petrie Park Tiaro Land Management Plan was adopted by Council on 7 March 2012.
The plan is scheduled to be reviewed after five years, however if the need arises then the document may be reviewed earlier. Your ideas and comments about management issues are welcome.
Council Owned Land
Apart fom reserves the Council also manages Council owned freehold land. These include public parkland, lots purchased under the Environnmental Levy program and other bushland lots designated for conservation purposes such as koala corridors.
