Newsletter No 21 – Winter 2015

//Newsletter No 21 – Winter 2015

The draft Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Management Plan received more than 7600 submissions, the majority of which were critical. This shows a remarkable level of public concern compared to the development of the (current) 1999 plan when the largest number of submissions received on any one of the three stages of public comment was 587.

In this edition of our newsletter we take a look at:

  • Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Management Plan.
  • Frenchmans Cap: The good, the bad and the ugly.
  • A Suggested Policy on Development Proposals for the TNPA Manifesto.
  • Know your parks and reserves: Peter Murrell Reserves.
  • Report on the Impact of Budget Cuts on the Parks & Wildlife Service.
  • Why we need the Environmental Defenders Office more than ever.
