Draft West Coast Off Road Vehicle Strategy open for public comment

Find out more
For the next eight weeks, members of the public are now invited to provide submissions and comments on the draft West Coast Off Road Vehicle Strategy.

The draft strategy identifies priority initiatives that will help manage and maintain existing off-road tracks and associated facilities (such as campgrounds) on a more sustainable basis. It does not consider the re-opening of the off-road vehicle tracks that have been closed or the development of new off-road tracks.

The draft strategy aims to protect the important natural and cultural values of the area, while allowing safe access, improved facilities and enhanced recreational experiences within the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area (APCA).

The draft strategy forms part of the Tasmanian Government's $10 million committed to support sustainable recreational off-road vehicle opportunities in the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area, and more widely on the West Coast. The funds have so far supported maintenance grading and renewal of roads and tracks to many of the small shack locations managed by PWS within the APCA, which is nearing completion.

Submissions and comments can be made on the draft strategy through the Have Your Say page​.​
