FMP draft management plan front cover

Publication Date

The Draft Forest Management Plan 2024-2033 (draft FMP) was referred to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) for a determination on whether the plan required assessment under Part IV of the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (EP Act).

In late May 2023, the EPA determined to assess the draft FMP at the level of Assessment on Referral Information (with additional information). The EPA also decided to undertake targeted consultation with relevant stakeholders and groups as part of the assessment.

The EPA released its assessment report in August 2023, recommending the plan may be implemented subject to conditions outlined. On 30 November 2023 the Minister for Environment approved the implementation of the plan subject to implementation conditions and procedures outlined in the Ministerial statement.

All documents provided to the EPA; the EPA assessment report; and Ministerial statement that a plan may be implemented are available on the EPA website.
