Three Capes Track development proposal still open for comment
There is still time to have your say on the Three Capes Track plan.
Tasmania's Parks and Wildlife Service has prepared a draft Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan for the proposed Three Capes Track within the Tasman National Park on the Tasman Peninsula. This document is available for public comment until the close of business on Friday 23 December 2011.
"Good facilities can be provided and maintained without resorting to massive over-development and we all know of other popular walks in the state which are crying out for track and facility improvements," Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown said in his submission.
"It is difficult to comprehend why the department wants to put all of its eggs in the one basket with the Three Capes Track, when spreading that funding around could improve facilities across the state so more regions of Tasmania can be marketed for their great overnight walking opportunities to supplement the already popular 60 Great Short Walks brochure and advertising."
Senator Brown's full submission is attached.
