Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area tracks decision

​The Tasmanian Government has made the decision to not proceed with the submission of a Public Environment Report to reopen three tracks south of Sandy Cape in the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area (APCA). 

In preparation for the Public Environment Report, the Government received a cultural heritage report about the three tracks which indicated that there is an unacceptable risk to Aboriginal Cultural Heritage, with no feasible mitigation measures to protect the values. 

Off-road vehicle use will not be permitted on tracks 501, 503 and 601.
