Exhibition period from 12 August 2010 to 30 September 2010
Community comments are invited on a plan of management for the Forster Tuncurry Crown Harbour Project.
The Forster Tuncurry Crown Harbour Project will establish a 30 year Plan of Management for Cape Hawke Harbour and the Crown lands along the CBD foreshores of the twin towns.
The masterplan is being undertaken through a Memorandum of Understanding between the NSW Land and Property Management Authority (LPMA) and Great Lakes Council. City Plan Services (CPS) has been appointed consultant for the project.
The process has advanced from “stakeholder” interviews in December 2009 and the Community Information Evening held in early March 2010 to this design phase when broad concepts are being explored with community involvement.
This exhibition commenced on 12 August and has been extended to close at 5pm on 30 September 2010.

The Harbour project is investigating short, medium and long term needs for all public foreshore lands and adjacent waters. Expanding marina facilities and looking at safe harbour options are a focus of the project as is improving foreshore public access and planning future public boating facilities. Concepts have identified opportunities to generate local employment as well as commercial land uses so funding may support the construction and maintenance of public facilities.
