Summary of amendments

Below is a summary of the proposed changes to the ‘Deep Creek and Talisker Conservation Parks Management Plan 1997’ and the ‘Newland Head Conservation Park Management Plan 2004’.

These changes are described in full in the Park Management Plan Draft Amendments.

Deep Creek and Talisker Conservation Parks Management Plan 1997:

  • A change is proposed to allow the development of a campsite in Deep Creek Conservation Park, near the existing Tapanappa campsite.
  • ​​The change will allow for a new campsite to be developed when land has not been previously cleared. An assessment of environmental and visitor risks must still be undertaken before a campsite can be developed.

Newland Head Conservation Park Management Plan 2006:

  • Newland Head Conservation Park only allows the development of new campsites in specific zones. It is proposed a new development zone be created to permit construction of a new walk-in campsite.
  • The new development zone will be within the existing rehabilitation zone, which is an area that was once cleared for agricultural grazing or mined for quarry rubble.
  • A minor increase in the size of the existing Waitpinga campground zoning has also occurred to account for any future development of that site.
  • Other small amendments are required throughout the management plan to account for a new campsite that is walk-in only.
