The bushfire situation in the TWWHA has worsened significantly in the last 40 years. Effective fire management depends on a range of risk management actions, none of which on their own provides a complete solution.
The proposed replacement hut at Lake Tahune is merely one component of a creeping upgrade of facilities at Frenchmans Cap being undertaken to date without any meaningful consultation with stakeholders.
Several aspects of the recent bushfires suggest that protection of rare and threatened fire-sensitive species was not effectively prioritised in the operational management of the 2016 firefighting efforts.
