Intro

​​​​

​​​​The Parks and Wildlife Service is responsible for reserve planning and the assessment of environmental impacts of proposed activities in meeting its obligations under the National Parks and Reserves Management Act 2002 and the Nature Conservation Act 2002. In doing so, the Parks and Wildlife Service invites the public to have their say on a range of matters in the development of plans and the assessment of environmental impact of activities on reserve. 

See the Environmental Impact Assessment ​(EIA) page for specific information about the assessment process.

Open and recently closed public consultations managed by the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service are listed below. The consultations that are currently open provide opportunities for the community and stakeholders to have their say​.

Existing management plans and related documents are available on the page Management plans and reports​.​

The new Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Tourism Master Plan can be accessed through the Department of Primary Industry, Parks, Water and the Environment website.​​
