What Happens Next

This issues paper supports the first of several opportunities to engage in the development and delivery of the four initiatives. The public consultation period for the issues paper opens for 12 weeks from 15 November 2019. We expect to release a draft policy in April 2020 for four weeks' public consultation. We aim to deliver a policy for Government's consideration by mid-2020. We will also be consulting stakeholders on specific elements of the four initiatives; for example, on updates to operational policies or planning a bioregional approach to native vegetation management (Figure 1).
