The Tasmanian Government, in mid 2017, committed to the development of a Master Plan for the Freycinet Peninsula that provides for a strategic approach to delivering a high quality visitor experience within the Freycinet area that is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable.

ERA Planning with a team of subconsultants were appointed in October 2017 to develop a Draft Master Plan in consultation with a steering committee comprising representatives of the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS), East Coast Tourism, Department of State Growth, Glamorgan Spring Bay Council, Freycinet Destination Action Plan Group and Freycinet Association Incorporated.

The master planning process involved consultation with the community and key stakeholders throughout. ERA facilitated a series of drop in sessions, workshops as well as one-on-one sessions and then synthesized and responded to over 140 public submissions on the Draft Master Plan.

The Master Plan sets the site context for the peninsula, addresses the outcomes of the preliminary community engagement, documents existing conditions and site issues and poses a suite of initiatives to address existing and predicted future needs of the site.

The Master Plan is currently being finalised, taking in to consideration submissions from stakeholders and community.
