Again, these could be strengthened:

· Objective D - "to protect the quality of the natural and built environment" shouldn't a 20 year plan go beyond this? Instead of 'protect', shouldn't we aim to 'protect, restore, recreate, enhance and reconnect' the natural environment? In addition to 'quality', can we look at 'quantity, connectivity, sustainability' etc? Do we need to make specific reference to (just) the PDNP and DVMWHS - aren't they automatically included in this objective, or should other priorities also be mentioned?

· Objective K - In reference to restoration, can we propose to use restoration to strategically increase GI provision, habitat connectivity, etc?
