A final report to Council will then be prepared, outlining the community’s responses to the draft Masterplan/ Plan of Management, and the changes it is therefore planned to make to finalise the document. Following adoption by Council, the Consultants will amend the draft Masterplan/ Plan of Management to produce a Final Masterplan/ Plan of Management for Tunks Park.
