Strengthening Parks Vic [3]: we hope this phrase isn’t sinister

The consultation project will culminate with the production of a final report, which will focus on:

  1. A community vision for parks
  2. Legislative and policy reform
  3. A modern business in government.

We haven’t been able to find out what the last of these means: but we hope it doesn’t prefigure yet another effort to turn this public service enterprise into a profit making business. We know that the parks system already generates $1.5 billion a year to the Victorian economy. We can do without projects to commercialise public assets via tourism infrastructure projects inside our parks.
