Public comment is sought for a revised draft of the Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan.
The draft master plan was initially released in June 2018, but was refined in response to feedback received in the consultation period.
In submissions for the previous draft, key themes from feedback included opposition to the use of the peninsula by helicopters and cruise ships, concerns that the area is already at capacity for visitors, issues around wastewater management, the need to prioritise the natural values of the area, and perceptions that the plan was too commercially driven.
Key initiatives in the draft include improved wastewater management, a new visitor gateway, a network of transport connections, a network of "experience nodes, and an entrance corridor.
The plan was developed with input from the community and representatives from the Parks and Wildlife Service, the Department of State Growth, the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council, East Coast Tourism, the Freycinet Association, and the Freycinet Destination Action Plan Group.
The Freycinet Action Network will comment on the plan and make its submission public in coming weeks.
Feedback is open until 9am April 14. For more information, visit parks.tas.gov.au.
