Wet Tropic Management Plan – Phase 2 Consultation

23rd March 2019

Wet Tropics Plan Review - have your say!

The Wet Tropics Management Plan 1998 (the Management Plan) protects the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area with a zoning and permit scheme, regulating activities with the potential to affect World Heritage values.

A review of the Management Plan is an opportunity for the Wet Tropics Management Authority to seek the community’s views and to update the Management Plan to ensure it reflects current land management practices. 

Reviews are required by law every 10 years. During the review, the current Management Plan remains in force.

While the Management Plan is a regulatory instrument that the Authority uses to manage and protect the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, in practice the Authority collaborates with many partners to achieve this—that’s why we are seeking your feedback in this second round of public consultations.

To review the Wet Tropics Plan please visit the Wet Tropics website

To review relevant maps please visit the interactive mapping portal please visit the Zoning Maps page. 

Submissions close on Thursday 18 April 2019.
