Plan of Management
Abstract: A draft management plan for the reefs and islands was released for public comment in October 1993, and attracted a lot of interest and written submissions. This plan has formed a basis for managing the Whitsundays since 1993 and has been revised to take into account submissions and comments received since that time. Changes to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act in 1994 introduced new provisions relating to management plans, to enable the preparation of statutory plans of management. This booklet introduces the statutory plan, the Whitsundays Plan of Management (the Plan), for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park component of the Whitsundays (the Area). The Plan has been prepared by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority in collaboration with the Queensland Department of Environment and with input from the Whitsunday Coastal Advisory Committee and other user groups. The Plan sets out the proposed laws for future management of the Area, additional to the zoning in the Central Section Zoning Plan. This booklet explains how the Plan will affect different users of the of the Area reefs and waters.
