Water research says 'Consider off-road activities in outer catchments'

15-Jun-2010

Research commissioned by the Department of Water has supported the RTRA position that managed use of trail bikes in outer catchment areas should be considered.

Among other findings, the Syme and Nancarrow study concluded:

"From the findings here it is apparent that the next, risk assessment stage of the project should initially consider the current policy option as well as the other two, somewhat supported options of passive activities in the 2km restricted zone and off-road activities in the outer catchment."

While obviously way too early to be celebrating, this is the first time that any acknowledgment has been given to the concept of managed trail bike use in catchments - so it's a positive step in the right direction.

The Syme and Nancarrow report is available for members in the Water Catchment project section.
