The publication date for the Plan has not yet been finalised. Work on the Draft Plan is now well advanced. If the Draft Plan passes through its final stages within the normal time scale, the target for publication is late autumn.

These final stages include:

Clearance by other Government Departments; and

Assessment by the Department of Regional Development for "conformity with the Regional Development Strategy".
