Consultation Papers

Reports and research with practical and creative ideas to improve the environment on Lamma in response to requests to participate in public consultation since 2009.

This page provides a chronology of the work that was documented relating to the environment and development on Lamma Island. Our small community includes engineers, architects, town planners, landscape architects, scientists, archaeologists and consultants as well as writers, artists and artisans who were able to turn ideas into creative and practical plans and strategies for enhancing life on Lamma now and for future generations.

Over time, we found that other Lamma residents had formed similar groups and participated in the consultation process. We have included the excellent work of our predecessors, some of whom remain unknown to us, so that their ideas are available to all.

We want to provide a record of all suggestions and proposals relating to our community for the benefit of future planners and residents, and anyone who appreciates this beautiful island.
