Ms O'CONNOR - Will the public submissions made the Parks and Wildlife Service in to the development of the draft Maria Island Management Plan be made available to the public? I understand those submissions closed on 7 June.

Mrs PETRUSMA - I bring to the table Jennifer Parnell who is the Acting Director of Landscape Programs.

Ms PARNELL - The submissions report and all public submissions would be made available with the plan once it goes up on the website. The plan is still in development.

Ms O'CONNOR - Thank you for that. The next question for stakeholders is when that plan will be finalised.

Mrs PETRUSMA - I think a draft plan has to be done first and then that goes out for public consultation. Is that correct?

Ms PARNELL - Public consultation is currently scheduled for late July on the draft plan. It is currently going through internal review and then it starts the statutory process to make it an approved plan.
