Wollongong City Council will hold a series of public information sessions next month to help residents better understand future plans for Sandon Point.
The council's long-awaited Sandon Point and McCauleys Beach draft management plan, released in late November, sets out a series of allowable uses for the site, including options to formalise the Sandon Point Aboriginal Tent Embassy site.
The document has been on public exhibition since December 1, despite objections from Illawarra Aboriginal groups, which claimed the council had no right allowing the community to dictate the embassy's future.
Wollongong council yesterday confirmed Illawarra Local Aboriginal Land Council representatives would be at each of the information kiosks.
"At these sessions council staff will outline the content of the draft plan [and] the land council will also provide information about the Aboriginal significance of the Sandon Point Aboriginal place and activities that support the site's cultural value."
The sessions will be held on February 2 at Sandon Point, and February 13 and 27 at Thirroul Community Centre.
