I am pleased to advise that the North Arm Cove and Carrington Local Community Plan has been completed.

When we first started preparing it in February 2021, following instigation of the process in mid 2020 by MidCoast Council, we didn't expect it would take so long.

Aboriginal Lands. The area would likely have been natural grassland and open woodland that was cared for by the clans of the Worrimi tribe.(More on the original grasslands later).

Post European Settlement .Since the time of European settlement with the arrival of the Australian Agricultural Company in the 1830’s, much of the original eucalypt woodland vegetation was cleared or extensively thinned and converted to grassland, where the original natural grassland did not exist. The bushland that we see around the cove now is open forests and woodlands that has regrown...
