The Great Otway National Park (Anglesea Heath) is one of the richest and most biodiverse areas in Victoria. In 2017, the state government set aside $2.3 million to ensure that the 6,510-hectares of heathlands are protected and enjoyed as an important natural, social and community asset. In 2018-2019, Jen project managed the development of 7 Position Papers regarding uses of this new component of the national park.
The Position Papers were written by Dr Tamara Boyd (Intrinsic Scope) and maps were produced by Luke Edwards (Canidae Development).
Jen then facilitated the community consultation process through a listening post, open house sessions and a survey. The 759 contributions received will inform an Implementation Plan for the Great Otway National Park (Anglesea Heath) to guide management and future use of the area.
Sally Chandler Ford assisted with the production of the consultation report, and Jen assisted Parks Victoria with an evaluation of the process.
