​​​The Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) invited public submissions on the proposed expansion of the Discovery Holiday Park at Cradle Mountain. The draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared by GHD (consultant), for Discovery Holiday Parks Cradle Mountain (proponent). 

The draft EIS describes the proposed development, outlines potential impacts to natural, cultural and recreational values and the commitments proposed to avoid or mitigate negative impacts. The statutory requirements of Conservation Area management and land use planning are also addressed in the EIS.
