Re­stricted use in­evitable

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

It may be just the mi­nor­ity caus­ing is­sues, but that’s enough for au­thor­i­ties to en­force more reg­u­la­tions on users of our Mur­ray River Parks with the re­lease of the fi­nal River Red Gum Parks Man­age­ment Plan later this year.

Most prob­lems ap­pear to be close to towns sit­u­ated along the river as they at­tract more tran­sient campers look­ing to avoid the cost of ac­com­mo­da­tion while they tem­po­rar­ily stay and work in the lo­cal area. Other prob­lems ex­ist such as campers re­serv­ing their favourite spots for days some­times weeks on end.

Rub­bish is­sues have also been an on­go­ing and grow­ing con­cern for au­thor­i­ties, again in­creas­ing the need for a more reg­u­lated ap­proach.

The man­age­ment plan is not aim­ing to com­pletely ban camp­ing or other uses it sim­ply aims for best prac­tice to sus­tain­ably man­age the parks while at the same time pro­tect­ing one of Aus­tralia’s iconic land­scapes so ev­ery­one can con­tinue en­joy­ing it for gen­er­a­tions to come.
