Pierces Creek—rehabilitation management (Question No 1066)

Mr Rattenbury asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 26 August 2010:

(1) What management plans are in place for the land located in the Paddy's River Road region south of Pierces Creek and east of the Namadgi National Park that was burnt out during the 2003 bushfires.

(2) Has Parks Conservation and Lands undertaken an assessment of the regrowth of the old pine forests and native vegetation in that region in the past two years; if so, when.

(3) What is the current status of the regrowth of the old pine forests and native vegetation in that region and does it in any way pose a fire risk.

(4) What rehabilitation work has been undertaken in the last three years and is any further rehabilitation work planned and what will it entail.

(5) What fire management plans are there for the area and where are these plans outlined.

(6) Has there been any consideration of developing this region as a recreational area; if so, what work has been undertaken.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Part of this area is in the Lower Cotter Catchment (LCC) and is covered by the Lower Cotter Catchment Strategic Management Plan. Part of the area in question is in the Bullen Range Nature Reserve and is therefore covered by the Murrumbidgee River Corridor Management Plan. The remaining area is managed as plantation forestry under a Code of Practice.

(2) Detailed assessments were undertaken in the LCC section in 2008 to assess the progress of rehabilitation and revegetation efforts. All existing pine plantation areas outside the LCC have been extensively assessed for both native and pine regrowth and strategies have been put in place to manage these areas accordingly.
