Future Reserve Lands audit


Tenders are being sought to undertake an audit of assets within lands managed by Forestry Tasmania to potentially be transferred to Parks and Wildlife Service management, General Manager Parks and Wildlife Service Peter Mooney said today.

Mr Mooney said the audit, which would be conducted with Forestry Tasmania, would focus on future reserve land identified through the Tasmanian Forests Agreement.

“While the new reserves remain subject to Parliamentary processes, PWS and FT, are putting in place measures to ensure that future transfer arrangements and management requirements are understood,” he said.

Mr Mooney said the audit would involve reviewing the buildings, visitor facilities, roads and tracks that are currently in place within the Future Reserve Lands.

Forestry Tasmania Chief Executive, Steve Whiteley, said the audit was part of a joint effort between FT and PWS.

“We are working together to ensure that we can make whatever changes are required in the most efficient and effective way possible.”
