Extension to invitation to comment on VicForests’ proposed
changes to VicForests’ Timber Release Plan
14 July 2020
VicForests has extended its feedback period on the proposed changes to its Timber Release Plan (TRP). This follows some difficulties experienced by stakeholders opening web links to online information.
The public consultation period has been extended until 5pm Tuesday 21 July 2020 to enable comment on the proposed TRP change by affected and interested parties and stakeholders.
The amendment to the TRP proposes an additional 59 new coupes in the Benalla-Mansfield, North-East and Tambo Forest Management Areas. Feedback on these changes and the new format of the TRP is sought in accordance with the Sustainable Forests (Timber) Act 2004 and will be considered prior to the reviewed TRP being submitted to the VicForests Board for approval.
A schedule of the proposed TRP change, including an interactive map, is available here.
