FROM ANDREW PAGE IN THE RADIO SNOWY MOUNTAINS NEWSROOM:
The Coalition of Brumby Advocates, a group comprised of Brumby and Horse Riding associations in the Snowy Mountains and Riverina regions of the state, held another meeting over the weekend.
This was to discuss the review of the Kosciuszko National Park Horse Management Plan, currently taking place by The National Parks & Wildlife Service.
Peter Cochran, President of the Snowy Mountains Bush Users Group, says The National Parks should fully release the draft management plan, before the election in March Next year.
“The draft management plan needs to be released prior to the next state election which is in March 2015, to allow those who are supporters of the Brumby advocacy groups to judge which side of the political fence they need to back,” Mr Cochran said.
“In other words, the review draft outcome needs to be published before the next state election so that those involved with the debate can make a judgement as to which side of politics they vote for,” he said.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service was unable to provide an exact release date.
