To the Editor,
In response to growing concern at the permit system currently in force, ostensibly as a Covid measure, and applied across all horse-camps in Kosciuszko National Park, Snowy Mountains Brumby Sustainability and Management Group have convened a public, community interest meeting.
The meeting has been convened to allow recreational Park users impacted by the permit system to comment in a forum where the responses will be used to formulate a submission to the Minister for the Environment and National Parks and Wildlife Services (NPWS).
An invitation has been extended to NPWS Tumut to attend and address the meeting and respond to questions from the floor.
It is anticipated that a number of Members of Parliament will be in attendance in order to gain a full understanding of the permit system issue prior to the submission being formulated and passed on to those parties mentioned. It is expected that the question of horse-camps will also be raised.
All recreational Park users and camp users with an interest in outcomes for themselves are urged to attend and participate in the meeting.
The meeting will be held at Club Tumut (Tumut Bowling Club), Richmond Street, Tumut, on Thursday March 11, commencing at 7pm.
Any enquiries can be directed to myself on 0429 030 148.
