The exhibition period for the Snowy Mountains Special Activation Precinct draft master plan has now concluded after attracting more than 13,000 views online.
Deputy Premier and Nationals Member for Monaro John Barilaro thanked those who made contributions and said there had been strong interest from both locals and tourists.
“The community’s feedback will help to shape the final master plan and ultimately our 40-year vision for the Snowy Mountains region,” Mr Barilaro said.
“We received 2,120 submissions with a further 1,331 people commenting on the precinct’s interactive map. Despite the challenging circumstances, the project team held over 40 face-to-face group sessions, a number of online webinars and extensive individual stakeholder meetings.
“Over the coming months, the NSW Government will be taking all feedback into consideration and will be responding to those who made submissions. Some changes may be made to the master plan based on the feedback we heard from the community.”
Community engagement will continue while submissions are assessed, ahead of the final master plan in the first half of 2022.
There will also be additional opportunities for the community to provide feedback on the Snowy Mountains Special Activation Precinct beyond the master planning phase of the project.
This will include exhibition of the Delivery Plan as well as the Alpine and Jindabyne Development Control Plans both of which will occur once the master plan is finalised.
