WET TROPICS MANAGEMENT PLAN 1998 - REG 38

Activities in zone B that may reduce impacts on the area

38 Activities in zone B that may reduce impacts on the area

(1) This section applies only to zone B.
(2) A permit may be issued to a person to carry out an activity if the authority considers carrying out the activity would have less adverse impact on the world heritage values and integrity of the area than not carrying out the activity.
(3) Subsection (2) applies whether or not the activity is consistent with the management purposes of zone B.
Examples—
1 A person applies for a permit to build a powerline in zone B and to remove 2 other powerlines. The authority may issue the permit (under part 4 ) if it considers building the new powerline would have less adverse impact on the world heritage values and integrity of the area than not building the new powerline and allowing the 2 existing powerlines to remain.
2 A person applies for a permit to build a powerline in zone B. An alternative way of achieving the purpose of the proposed activity involves building 2 powerlines, which would have a more adverse impact on the world heritage values and integrity of the area. Subsection (2) does not provide that a permit may be issued to build the powerline merely because it would have less adverse impact than a particular alternative. In this case, not building the powerline does not necessarily involve implementing the alternative with the more adverse impact.
