Share your thoughts on the proposed amendments to the Forestry Regulations 2013 which aim to develop a sustainable future for the recreational use of state forest reserves

What’s being decided?

We want your feedback on proposed amendments to the Forestry Regulations 2013 under the Forestry Act 1950.

Key changes include:

  • modest increases to regulated fees to horse riding;
  • fossicking;
  • camping permit fees;
  • the requirement for dogs to always be kept on a lead while in a forest reserve;
  • tighter restrictions around the use of generators, chainsaws and metal detectors;
  • an increase in expiation fees for offences committed under the Forestry Act 1950.

We are encouraging input from across the community including the horse riding community, recreational users and local community members.
