Almost 100,000 hectares in additional reserves officially come into being today.


The Minister for Environment, Parks and Heritage, Brian Wightman said the proclamation is the first in a series to implement the proposed reserves identified in the Tasmanian Forests Agreement Act 2013.


“The additional conservation areas, regional reserves and national parks amount to approximately 95,700 hectares and will transfer to the Parks and Wildlife Service to manage.


“A management plan is currently being produced which will add further clarity and certainty around land use.


“The name of the class being assigned to the areas of reserved land specified in the proclamation is conservation area, regional reserve or national park and is included in the names,” Mr Wightman said.
