The current priorities are being reviewed with respect to changing trends and emerging issues, and available resources to progress accordingly. The June 2015 Peninsula Model Forum provided an opportunity for stakeholders across the catchment to collectively reflect on and review the current priorities, and make recommendations regarding future priorities as captured in the Forum Report. This information is currently being considered by the Peninsula Model Governance Group.
