Is the issue that has led to the proposal for regulation of bolting safety-related? Happy to try and dig out some useful stats to inform responses if so.

I think it would be worth asking John Davies if you don't know off the top of your head. Having reviewed the section that talks about bolting, the suggestion to regulate new bolting comes a bit out of the blue and there's no accompanying rationale other than the generic PoM objective of 'avoid, mitigate and manage risk'.

Pointless getting stats on how safe climbing is if the suggestion is there for aesthetic reasons.

Interestingly, the Plan itself says:
"The Blue Mountains City Council Nature-based Recreation Strategy 2005-2015 notes that recent reforms to Insurance Liability legislation have placed much of the responsibility for personal safety in recreation activities back onto the individual participant."
