Community Engagement

Working with our community, who are the users of the Reserve, is integral to help us transform the space into an iconic, community driven destination.

We see community engagement as a key tool to help us develop a well-researched and robust Land Management Plan that addresses the needs of both the community and stakeholders and ensures the Reserve meets existing and future needs.

Your feedback and ideas will help guide us and provide input into how the Reserve looks and is utilised in the future.

 

COMMUNITY WEBINARS

We hosted two online webinars in 2020, to keep our community up to date with the progress of the Land Management Plan, while keeping in line with COVID-19 regulations.

 

On Tuesday, 15 December we provided an update on the final Land Management Plan

 

On Wednesday, 29 July we discussed the draft Land Management Plan

 

DRAFT LAND MANAGEMENT PLAN COMMUNITY CONSULTATION

Consultation on the draft Land Management Plan (LMP) has now closed.

W received more than 200 submissions from our community and stakeholders on the draft plan, which resulted in significant improvements being made to the final Plan. We expect to publicly release the final revised Plan in March 2021.

The Trust is also committed to achieving quick wins which will improve access, movement and activate the Reserve more immediately in the short term.
