At this stage in the management planning process we are looking for feedback on the final draft management plan for several areas. These revised draft management plans provided below are presented for a final public review before moving forward in the approval process.

Draft management plans for these areas were originally released for public review in May 2014. Public input and other relevant information received since 2014 has been assessed and where appropriate, changes have been made to the management plans to clarify intent and amend the proposed management direction.
