After Stage 3 engagement concludes your feedback will be used to inform the drafting of the Port Stephens CMP. This draft will be then placed on public exhibition, which is expected in early 2024. This is stage 4 of the preparation of the plan. This phase also includes the endorsement of the CMP by Council. The program will then be sent to the Minister for Local Government for official certification.
