I believe that the plans regarding the shacks should remain as they are and that over time the shacks should be removed and the parks returned to their natural states. Limiting sections of the Park to individual ownership goes against the Park being open to all. There is plenty of accommodation outside of the Parks for people to use without the need to provide for it inside the park.

I agree with the comment that "The previous, long standing policy of life tenure has nearly worked in Little Dip in that only one of the original shacks now remains! This policy should remain to ensure that this natural environment is returned to its original state."

I disagree with the current State government policy. Shacks are elitist and an intrusion into our protected environment. The previous, long standing policy of life tenure has nearly worked in Little Dip in that only one of the original shacks now remains! This policy should remain to ensure that this natural environment is returned to its original state.

I am opposed to the amendments. I'd like the shack land to be returned so that everybody can benefit equally from the Parks.
