NPWS Reviews

Currently there are several reviews being conducted by NPWS in the Kosciuszko National Park (KNP), detail of the reviews that most affect SASC members are listed below:

1.  Governance of Perisher Range Resorts (PRR) and Charlotte Pass

The aim of the review is to have low cost operating model that is sustainable and includes activation of summer activities.

At Perisher Range Resorts (PRR) NPWS are looking to pass responsibility for leases and municipal services (water, sewerage system, drainage, garbage and roads) to private enterprise. Also the 2005 IPART funding model failed to deliver the income required to operate PRR under NPWS management.

The public and stakeholder consultation periods have been completed.

Expressions of interest have been sort from world wide audience and we await completion of NPWS evaluation of the submissions.

Renewal of our Sub-Lease at Charlotte Pass is dependent on the outcome of this review. Our Directors, SLOPES and Charlotte Pass Ski Lodges Association are looking after our interests.

More information is available on the NPWS page

2.  KNP Environmental Carrying Capacity Review

The existing Plan of Management uses bed numbers to limit capacity in KNP however best practice approach s for performance based environmental management.

NPWS has stated they have no agenda in this review and it is independent of the Perisher and Charlotte Pass management review (see above). The first consultation period has concluded but there will be further consultation before the review is completed. The review could result in an amendment to the KNP Plan of Management. Timeline for review completion is unclear, for more information follow this link to NPWS site.

3.  KNP Wild Horse Management Plan

The engagement and public comment periods have closed we await the Public exhibition of the Draft Wild Horse Management Plan which was due March-April 2016. See NPWS web page for more information.
