Consultation: Review of environmental carrying capacity in alpine resorts within Kosciuszko National Park

The NSW Government is looking at better ways to measure and regulate the environmental carrying capacity of alpine resorts in Kosciuszko National Park. Currently, carrying capacity is addressed using ‘bed limits’. The ‘environmental carrying capacity’ of an area is the scale of human activity that can occur without degrading the environment beyond an acceptable level.

This may lead to an amendment of the Kosciuszko National Park plan of management and changes to the way new development proposals are initiated and managed in the alpine resort areas of Thredbo, Charlotte Pass, Perisher Range and Selwyn. Feedback is sought on the community’s initial ideas and concerns. Further opportunities to provide input will be provided later in the year.

Submissions are invited until Monday 14 March 2016.
