Postby Nuts » Fri 29 Mar, 2019 6:46 am

An extension to the public comment period has been provided, with feedback to now be received by 9am Friday 26 April 2019.
The focus is on visitor infrastructure and investment, including services to better manage increased visitation to the Peninsula, both now and into the future.

Etc. etc. and so on..

Freycinet Master Plan - What future do you want for Freycinet?

PLEASE SAVE THE DATE – COLES BAY PUBLIC MEETING, COLES BAY COMMUNITY HALL, 11 AM, APRIL 22 2019 – BRING YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS – EVERYONE WELCOME!

- Do you want up to 200 24-seat bus movements per day, going through the Esplanade and Jetty Road, from Boxing Day to 31 January? Possibly as many as 10,000 bus movements through the village each season.

- How is this plan aiming for a sustainable future at Freycinet?

- Do you want commercial ferry and water taxi access to the Park at the Fisheries (quarry)? Think noise, new boat movements, a new jetty at the quarry, doubling the length of Breakwater Jetty and forget about lazy afternoons with the children fishing off the jetty.

- Do you want an unlimited number of visitors to the park at peak times or a limit on numbers?

- Is building new car parks the best answer to manage ever increasing visitor numbers to Freycinet? At what point will we stop building new car parks? Will Wineglass Bay be the same with 500 or more people on the beach at any one time?

- Were you as a local resident or shack owner consulted about what you value about Freycinet and how the Master Plan could manage those values?

- What impact will the international airport (scheduled to commence in Dec/Jan 20/21) and the substantial additional capacity of the Spirit of Tasmania ships have on Tasmania’s visitor numbers? Will we become a mass tourism destination? What impacts will this have on Tasmanian locals and our brand? Think traffic, housing affordability and impacts on our natural and cultural heritage.

- What can we learn from places around the world who are suffering from mass tourism?

Date: Monday 22 April 2019, 11 am – 12.30 pm
Venue: Coles Bay Community Hall, 6 Cosgrove Street, Coles Bay
