Western Suburbs Weekly - - News - By LISA THOMAS

THE Town of Clare­mont has ap­proved the Lake Clare­mont Man­age­ment Plan 2016-21 to go out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion.

The plan evolved af­ter com­mu­nity en­gage­ment changed the fo­cus of man­age­ment from sim­ply con­serv­ing and pro­tect­ing the lake and bush­land, to the man­age­ment of cul­tural, so­cial, recre­ational, sport­ing and en­vi­ron­men­tal val­ues of a mixed-use pub­lic open space.

Coun­cil­lors ap­proved the plan unan­i­mously at a meet­ing on Tues­day night .

Cr Bruce Haynes said he was pleased to re­lease the man­age­ment plan for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion.

“The doc­u­ment is a mas­sive im­prove­ment and is fit to go out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion,” he said.

Cr Peter Browne con­grat­u­lated Cr Haynes and the Lake Clare­mont com­mit­tee for their hard work.

“It’s an out­stand­ing doc­u­ment,” he said.

“I do think there is a need for greater bal­ance of recre­ation and en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors.”
