Proposed Changes

This page lists all current notified Changes (or Variations to Changes). Each Change includes supporting documentation, summaries of submissions received, and any decisions made.  

Private Plan Change Requests are also included. These are requested amendments to the TRMP that have been advertised (notified) for public submissions but do not have legal effect and do not form part of the TRMP.  Private Plan Changes do not have any legal effect until decisions on submissions are notified and either no appeals are received or if there are appeals, all appeals are resolved.
