Second round of consultation begins on the future of Freycinet Peninsula


Tasmania’s unrivalled natural environment is a key driver in our nation-leading visitor economy and the Freycinet Peninsula is one of our most popular tourism destinations. 

The revised Draft Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan has been developed with input from the community, the Parks and Wildlife Service, the Department of State Growth, Glamorgan Spring Bay Council, East Coast Tourism, the Freycinet Association Inc. and the Freycinet Destination Action Plan group.

The revised Plan is supported through the Government’s recent $365,000 investment to enable TasWater to undertake a feasibility study and provide options to address the wastewater infrastructure needs of the region, one of the Plan’s key initiatives.

Today, stakeholders from the first round of consultation will meet to discuss the revised Plan in Coles Bay. 

A public meeting will be held at the Coles Bay Community Hall on Sunday 24 March 2019 where the revised Draft Master Plan will be presented and a community questions and answers session will take place. 

Further information and a copy of the revised Draft Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan will be available at www.parks.tas.gov.au from Saturday 16 March 2019 and public comment is invited. Comments on the revised Plan must be received by 9am Monday 15 April 2019.
