There are a number of Shire Team’s that we are engaging to ensure the Draft Concept Plan provided at consultation for Key Stakeholder input/feedback is achievable. 
To give you a brief summary, the Concept Plan Stage of a Master Plan takes up to 12months to complete and we had commenced on July 1st with the Key Stakeholder meetings. This time frame is also impacted by Council Caretaker Period, which is from 22nd of Sept- 24th of October, 2020. 
The next stage of consultation with yourself and all other key user groups will be in November (after Council Caretaker Period). I will provide dates closer to the time.
