PARKS & WILDLIFE PLANNING FOR MARIA
KEY POINTS –
- The Parks and Wildlife Service is commencing work on updating the Maria Island Management Plan and the site plan for the Darlington Probation Station World Heritage site.
- Local firm, Inspiring Place, has been contracted to oversee the review and update of the plans. They will be engaging the community and stakeholders such as the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council throughout the project.
- One of the initial steps will be the development of discussion papers as a basis for gaining public and stakeholder input into the development of the draft plans. Those discussion papers are due to be released early in the new year and public forums will be held in Triabunna, Launceston and Hobart in the new year.
People will be able to track the project and access the discussion papers and other information via the project’s Have Your Say page on the Parks and Wildlife Service website.
