The Central Coast draft Marine Plan is now available for public review and comment. To review the draft plan, learn about community meetings in Bella Coola and Shearwater and provide comments, please visit Central Coast Draft Plan for Input. The public review period runs to July 11, 2014.
The MaPP team extends thanks to all who participated in the public review of the North Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and North Coast draft Marine Plans. The public consultation periods for these three sub-regions are now closed.
More than 300 people have attended public meetings to date. In April, three public meetings were held on Vancouver Island and four on Haida Gwaii, in addition to meetings with interested stakeholder groups. Two North Coast public meetings were held in mid-May and two Central Coast meetings will take place on June 16 (Bella Coola) and June 18 (Shearwater). Participants who are unable to attend the Central Coast meetings or have comments on the Central Coast draft Marine Plan can provide input via online response forms, email and mail. Learn more.
Following the public and stakeholder consultation processes, sub-regional planning teams will review all the feedback and make changes to the plans where appropriate. The comments received from the public review have been documented, and a summary of the main themes of the comments will be made available on the MaPP website following completion of the final plan documents.
