Now is the time to have your say on the Management Plans for two very important National Parks - Aoraki Mount Cook and Westland Tai Poutini.
Management Plans are only ever revised once every generation and fundamentally dictate the balance of Conservation, Recreation and Tourism within each National Parks boundaries.
NZRA will be making submissions one behalf of the Outdoor Recreation sector, but individual submissions are important too.
There are some bold and confronting proposals in the current drafts, including a 'park and ride' system for Aoraki Mount Cook and the provisions for a gondola adjacent to Franz Josef Glacier.
The Draft plans can be read and submitted upon here.
