Survey results contained in community values report
The values report - compiling the responses of the 850 people who participated in a community survey and the more than 400 people involved in a phone random survey - has been received by Council and is available for the public to view.
In summary, it was found the river is highly regarded for its natural and scenic values and is generally considered to be healthy. Recreational opportunities are highly valued and there is general support for a wide range of passive and active, water and shore-based pursuits.
Respondents said protection of the natural features of the waterway, addressing bank erosion and ensuring good water quality are priority issues for future river management.
The community also wants Council and other government agencies to ensure recreational use of the waterway is able to be enjoyed without conflict.
