In May 2014 Council adopted a Future Directions Strategy for the Cattai Wetlands which was prepared with funding received from the Federal Government through its Caring for our Country Program. The Strategy was developed following an extensive consultation process to identify community values and desires for the future management of the wetlands.
The adoption of the Strategy will help us balance the community use of the site with the need to protect and enhance its significant environmental and cultural heritage values. While the Strategy provides us with the opportunity to consider proposals for commercial uses of the site such as eco-tourism, only low-key and sensitively located activities will be permitted.
