Exhibition extended - have your say

Opportunity to comment on the Tomaree Coastal Walk draft Master Plan and draft Review of Environmental Factors is extended until 3 November 2020.

Consultation on the Tomaree Coastal Walk draft Master Plan and draft Review of Environmental Factors has been extended for a further 2 weeks until 3 November 2020.

The extension follows requests from some stakeholders and will allow individuals and groups more opportunity to finalise or make a submission or make additions or changes to a submission already lodged.

The Tomaree Coastal Walk draft Master Plan and draft Review of Environmental Factors has been on public exhibition for comment for the past 4 weeks.

Anyone who has already lodged a submission and would like to make changes or additions can email npws.huntercentralcoastbranch@environment.nsw.gov.au

The exhibition provides an important opportunity for the community and other stakeholders to have a say about the proposed Tomaree Coastal Walk and future visitor facility improvements in Tomaree National Park. We value everyone's feedback.

Submit your comments by 5.00pm Tuesday 3 November 2020 in the following ways:

While all submissions count, they are most effective when we understand your ideas and the outcomes you want for the precinct. Some suggestions to help you write your submission are:

  • Write clearly and be specific about the issues of concern to you.
  • Note which page of the document your comments relate to.
  • Give reasoning in support of your points - makes it easier for us to consider your ideas and helps avoid misinterpretation.
  • Tell us specifically what you agree/disagree with and why.
