NSW Regional Boating Plans stakeholder engagement
A comprehensive stakeholder engagement program was developed to make sure there was input across the board - from high-level industry and stakeholder groups to everyday users of boating.
The first stage of this program involved an initial round of consultation with councils and other stakeholders to help get an understanding of the key boating issues in the region.
An on-line survey was also conducted to get input from the general public and boating community on the key boating safety, storage and infrastructure issues in the respective regions.
The input received through this first stage of stakeholder engagement was used to help produce draft Regional Boating Plans for each of the 11 major boating regions in NSW.
On top of this, public information sessions were held in each region to present the key findings for the respective draft Regional Boating Plans. This was about giving the community a say on the draft plan.
Public consultation has now closed with feedback from the public information sessions and comments received via email were used to finalise the Regional Boating Plans. Copies of the draft Regional Boating Plans are available below.
