South-west residents can have their say about estuary management plans for the Hopkins and Merri rivers on Tuesday.
The Plan Review Workshop is at the Pavilion Cafe in Warrnambool from 10am, with all “welcome to give feedback” on issues relating to plants and animals, water quality and quantity, form and function, recreational use and cultural values.
Coastal planner Jarred Obst said the workshop would be a good way for people to learn about and get involved in the management of the rivers’ tidal mouths.
“(The plans) were developed with the help of the community,” he said.
“This is a great opportunity for people to review them and see what gaps there may be.”
