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.

This management plan was approved by His Excellency the Governor-in-Council on 2 November 1998 and took effect on 16 December 1998, being seven days after publication of that approval in the Government Gazette. The provisions of Section 28 of the plan, which authorise the exercise of certain statutory powers, were approved by both Houses of the Parliament of Tasmania on 22 June 1999 in accordance with Section 21(3AA) of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1970 and gazetted in accordance with Section 21(3A) of the Act.

The management plan provides considerable detail on the natural and cultural heritage of the park, and the management objectives and prescriptions
