Estuary plan is open for comment
Gosford Council have placed its Draft Brisbane Water Estuary Management Plan on public exhibition and will run from Monday, June 13, until Friday, July 29.
The plan aims to provide a balanced long-term framework for ecologically sustainable use of the estuary and its catchment following recommendations of a study last year, according to council environment planning officer Mr Tim Macdonald.
Mr Macdonald said that the plan included a series of actions to improve the natural estuarine environment.
"The plan will implement different ways for us to protect, rehabilitate and improve the estuary and catchment, as well as ensuring ecologically sustainable development throughout the area.
"The implementation of this plan will allow us to manage the estuary and catchment to ensure its health and vitality.
"We want the public to be able to utilise this valuable natural resource and this is a step in the direction of achieving that," said Mr Macdonald.
Council will host a community forum in Erina to discuss the plan on Wednesday, June 15.
