Latest feedback to help refine River Plan

Published:

Council officers are working through more than 60 submissions received during the latest round of consultation on the draft Noosa River Plan.

Submissions closed earlier this year and it’s likely to take a few months for officers to review the feedback, and for a report to be tabled to Council.

Environment and Sustainable Development Director Kim Rawlings said further engagement is occurring with some of the submitters, particularly commercial operators.

“We received some quite detailed responses and we’re currently reading through all of the responses and considering various changes to the draft Plan as a result,” she said.

Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) announced before Christmas that it would increase its presence on the water, to better manage compliance issues.

“We certainly welcome MSQ’s commitment, and now we need to ensure the draft Plan captures this commitment and that any refinements required as a result are incorporated.”

Ms Rawlings said the updated Noosa River Plan would come before the new council for consideration following the March 28 election.

“The draft Noosa River Plan is the culmination of many years’ work and many rounds of community consultation.

“We have received some great feedback from the community, and we look forward to finalising this important plan for our magnificent river system in the near future,” she said.
