There’s been a bit of a stir in the media recently about proposed changes to Metropolitan and Regional Parks regulations impacting on bushwalking activities in Victoria.
We thought we’d share the detail missing from the articles, which is available via the Engage Victoria website: https://engage.vic.gov.au/MRP_Regulations
The list of affected parks is included in Appendix A of the downloadable document. Most are metropolitan parks or small regional parks and won’t affect our bushwalking activities. In fact many will be better protected under the proposed changes.
It is a timely reminder though to stay abreast of public consultation opportunities and have your say BEFORE decisions are made. It’s often too late when it is picked up by the national media.
