Summary

The Management Plan for the Ben Lomond National Park has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of part IV of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1970.

A draft of this plan was released for public comment in accordance with statutory requirements from 7 June 1997 until 19 September 1997. This plan is a modified version of that draft, having been varied to take account of public input during that period and the views of the National Parks and Wildlife Advisory Council.
