The Namadgi Management Plan

Yesterday Mr Stanhope announced the release of a new Namadgi National Park Plan of Management. (There’s also a summary.)

Mr Stanhope said the plan includes several recommendations arising from a Standing Committee’s inquiry into the draft management plan including new rules relating to the use of the park for horse riding and events.

“More stringent rules have been applied to the use of the park for recreation including restrictions on the areas of the reserve that can be used for events,” Mr Stanhope said. “The plan also commits the Government to developing a policy to guide the assessment of applications for events within the Park.

“The plan requires horse riders to keep at least 30 metres away from historic huts and creeks in order to protect these fragile areas from potential damage.”

The plan comes into effect on 24 September unless the Assembly votes to disallow it.

What’s Your opinion?

I think they should get rid of the Aboriginal name and use something we can all relate to, like Mountbatten National Park.

Shows you how wrong you can be…there I was thinking it was the hoons from outer Tuggers in their hotted up Commodores thrashing the huts for a lark…
