Above is a sample of the submission I made to NPWS. If anyone is interested & can take some time to make a submission hopefully the above can help - don't copy word for word but if you agree with any points then use it to help in yours.

I also sent a copy to the NSW Resources Minister & NSW Tourism Minister as I believe they are or should be stakeholders in this policy & decision making process. From a tourism viewpoint NSW Tourism should also look at making a positive submission to something that may improve tourism in some regional areas which I have pointed out to them.

Thanks Lonewolf - I'm hoping it goes well too. Giving NPWS the benefit of the doubt at the moment & hoping that something workable for everyone comes out of it.

Emailed off a response to the draft policy.
Responded item by item through the daft draft policy.

Thanks for the inspiration mbasko smile

Here is an interesting page to look at to compare NPWS policies for other activities in the parks

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/policies/

I forgot about geocaching and horse riding when I put in my submission as I only found this page after I submitted.

I presume one attaches it as a pdf to the email?
Is that what you did mbassko or did you put it in the email as text?
Do not want NPWS to lose it.

Took all day


I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

Glad I could help & hopefully others follow on.
I attached mine as a .pdf to the email.

An interesting point from the Beekeeping policy that should be adapted to fossicking also:

- "Will beekeepers be notified when land is added to a park?
Yes. The Reserve Establishment Team in NPWS will notify the NSW Apiarists' Association when NPWS acquires lands for reservation under the NPW Act."

The Reserve Establishment Team should also notify NAPFA when it acquires land. This will help NAPFA to be able to make timely comment & also notify members so any with a direct interest can have input at the draft plan of management stage.

The Reserve Establishment Team should also notify Gem and Lapidary Council of NSW when it acquires land.
That might get them more involved.

Wonder if the various gem fossicking forums or clubs are aware of the submission? Hopefully they're already onto it too.
