Kangaroo Valley Plan of Management

The heritage listed showground at Kangaroo Valley is typical of the diverse uses and historical nature of many such facilities throughout the State.  Co-ordinating their future and maintaining their character and place within the community are central to the need for long-term planning.  

Locale Consulting, in association with Ayling & Drury Landscape Architecture, prepared a Plan of Management for the Kangaroo Valley Showgrounds near Nowra.  The area is partially Council and partially Crown Land, necessitating a statutory document that would apply under both the Local Government and Crown Lands legislation.  The Plan provides the management and operational objectives for the area, including re-categorisation of some areas of the site involving a public hearing.  The Plan included “Strategic Directions Plans”, based around landscape, access/circulation and built form.

The project resulted in long-term site development principles that seek to balance future needs with the unique setting.
