Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the draft Peafowl Management Plan (the Plan).
More than 400 submissions were received with the majority of respondents supportive of the peafowl remaining in the inner south. The ACT Government has decided not to continue with the Plan in its current form. Instead, we will work with the local community to develop an agreed approach to the future management of the peafowl which will be jointly carried out by the ACT Government and residents.
For a summary of the feedback received during consultation, please see below Consultation Report.
The next step will be to facilitate the formation of a community group that is representative of the community as a whole. We want all views represented, those who supported the removal of the peafowl and those who wished for them to remain. It is important that the complaints that have been received over the years are taken into account as we continue to work with the community to develop an agreed approach to the management of the peafowl population.
Check back soon for more details and information on how you can get involved.
