NPWS Director Kane Weeks said the document, including a biodiversity assessment report, monitoring scoping report and preliminary designs, will be on public display from September 15 to October 15, 2021.
“The project is moving forward and we are now at the point where we are seeking feedback on what the walk might look like for visitors,” Weeks said.
âThe Environmental Considerations Review (REF) covers how the project proposes to modernize and realign sections of the current trail, build new sections of walking trail and provide refuges and walk-in camping options. -you.
âThis is an important opportunity for the NPWS to capture the wide range of perspectives of the community and ensure they are taken into account when finalizing plans.
âWe call on people to review the documents and record their thoughts, comments and suggestions.
âThere is no local precedent for this type of project, we are talking about creating an exciting new signature attraction on the far south of the coast that will provide a multi-day experience for visitors.
âIn order to fully capture everyone’s comments, we ask them to submit their response through the official channels set out on the Light to Light website.
âThe REF will also be discussed at the first Light to Light Walk Stakeholder Reference Group meeting later this month,â Weeks said.
At the end of the public exhibition period on October 15, 2021, all submissions will be reviewed and a report will be provided to the determining authority.
