How to find Cape York plans — Who Plans Here
Words Ben Lister and Robyn May
Who Plans Here is a Cape York NRM tool accessible on our website. The tool enables users to locate plans that are in place across the region. Plans are updated regularly, with over 150 plans currently available.
Plans that Cape York NRM has permission to share can be located by searching a selected area on the site’s Cape York map—plans within that selected area will be displayed. Users will then have the option to download, or to contact the plan owner for access.
This tool gives voice to both past and current planning on Cape York from property to regional scales.
A few examples of plans already available are:
Survey of Forest Resources of Cape York Peninsula
Surface Water Resources of Cape York Peninsula
Fire on Cape York Peninsula
Recovery plan for marine turtles
Why is this tool useful?
This is a one-stop site that enables Cape York landholders to do a quick search to find out what plans are already in place in their location of interest, and who to go to to find out more information on that plan.
