Constituency Question – Tower Hill

My question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, and I ask her for the latest information on the development of the Tower Hill master plan.

Public consultation started in October last year and the Engage Victoria website says that a consultation findings summary is to be released in January 2020, but there is yet to be any sign of this information.

Tower Hill is a favourite for locals and is a hidden gem for tourists who are lucky enough to discover it. Without fail you will see a wallaby, emus or koalas. But there is also much opportunity that is not being realised, and this master plan is an important document to start unlocking that potential.

This is a critical issue for my electorate, particularly the entrance to the park, which is at the top of a crest on the busy Princes Highway and creates a dangerous situation where there have been many, many near misses. Minister, can you provide me with the information about when this plan will be released?
