In August 1989, the Lake Claremont research report (1987-88) was presented to Council (to view the report click here). Research found that water of the lake contained sufficiently large quantities of phosphorous for its waters to be classified as hypereutrophic. In 1992, the first management plan was developed. This was updated in 1998 and renamed Lake Claremont Policy 1998. To view the policy click here.
In 2007, the management plan was updated again and approved by Council in 2010, this directed much of the revegetation and conservation works undertaken at the site over the last ten years. During that time, the water quality has improved and a number of bird species have been recorded at the site. To view the plan click here.
In 2016, the most recent Management Plan was approved by Council. This document has been broken down into separate sections to allow the documenting of all flora and fauna found at the site. Click on the links below to view the Lake Claremont Management Plan and appendices.
The Lake Claremont Management Plan directs actions that need to be addressed in an operational plan and that have been identified to be undertaken at the site over the next twelve months.
