Have your say!
We want to ensure that the community can have a voice and contribution to the new Plan of Management for the Belmont Wetlands State Park.
Please fill in our independent community survey. It takes only 2-3 minutes and it will really assist us in making your voice heard more broadly. Our survey closed on Friday 18 March 2022.
Our independent community survey results are available.
Our independent survey results can be viewed here. Thank you to all the people that have filled in our survey.
The BWSP survey is now closed.
Click here to: Belmont Wetlands State Park Community Consultation page. As of May 02, 2022, the State Park survey results had not been released yet.
Go to our About page for our vision.
Why two surveys??
We feel that some important questions were not asked in the Belmont Wetlands survey, that is why we ask you to please fill in our survey as well, thank you.
