I recently had a phone call from a senior planner at MidCoast Council about the Rural Strategy. She rang following a request I had made a few days earlier for an update on the timing for the strategy.

The strategy is expected to be released in February/March next year, which is later than the previous advice of late this year. Apparently more work is being put into it to make it more user friendly with extra features such as online mapping.

After the strategy is released there will be a comprehensive engagement program over 2-3 months.

The bushland that we see around the cove now is open forests and woodlands that has regrown...
