Great Barrier Reef Strategic Assessment - Submissions

Public submissions were an important part of the strategic assessment and were considered throughout the strategic assessment process. The public comment process was an opportunity for all members of the community to have a say on the future management of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and adjacent coastal zone.

Submissions were called for on 1 November 2013 until 31 January 2014.

Comments received during the consultation period are being used to inform the preparation of final reports for the Great Barrier Reef Strategic Assessment. The final reports will be provided to the Australian Minister for the Environment for consideration in mid 2014.

The Department recently wrote to those who provided a submission on the draft strategic assessment reports requesting permission to publicly release their submissions. The following are submissions are from stakeholders who approved the release of their submission.
