New regulations proposed for You Yangs 5-Feb-2010 At 12:16:40 PM earwig

There are new regulations proposed for forest parks, which includes the You Yangs. DSE are asking for comments and a copy can be found here:

http://www.dse.vic.gov.au/dse/nrenfor.nsf/Home+Page/DSE+Forestry~Home+Page?open

Regulation 20 covers rock climbing and similar activities
(1) The managing body may by determination set aside any area of a forest reserve or forest park as an area where rock climbing, abseiling, hang gliding, paragliding or any other similar activity is permitted.
(2) A determination under subregulation (1) may specify the times or periods during which the area may or may not be used for the purposes for which it has been set aside under subregulation (1).
(3) A person must not rock climb, abseil, hang glide, paraglide or carry out any other similar activities in a forest reserve or forest park unlessó
(a) he or she does so in an area set aside under subregulation (1) for that purpose and in accordance with the determination setting aside the area; or
(b) he or she does so under and in accordance with a permit issued by the Secretary.
Penalty: 10 penalty units.
(4) The Secretary may issue a permit for the purposes of subregulation (3).

So basically, climbing not permitted unless the managers decide it is allowed in a certain area and then it may be subject to conditions, which may include a permit.
