Wet Tropics Plan review

In 2017 the Wet Tropics Management Authority will begin a formal review of its management plan. The Wet Tropics Managemant Plan 1998 is subordinate legislation which regulates activities in the World Heritage Area through zoning maps and a permit system.

The Authority is required to undertake two rounds of public consultation about proposed changes to the plan. The first round will be formally advertised in March 2017. A booklet of proposed changes and an interactive mapping site will be developed to assist with community engagement. Stay tuned.

The existing Zoning Maps (1:250,000 only) can be viewed below:

  1. Existing zoning (northern)

  2. Existing zoning (southern)

If you or your organisation would like to discuss the Plan review further, you can contact Campbell Clarke on (07) 4241 0531 or Lorraine Briggs on (07) 4241 0520.
