Thunder Point Vegetation management permit ISSUED

WMTBC is pleased to announce that the planning permit for vegetation management of the existing trail network at Thunder Point has now been issued by Warrnambool City Council (WCC) and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

The permit represents an important advance for the club, and the committee is confident that it will reinvigorate club activities.

The WMTBC Committee is extremely appreciative of the support of all current and past club members and the broader community in getting us to this point. The support arising from recent WMTBC media has been particularly enthusiastic and respectful. While it has been a long process, we thank WCC and DELWP for their assistance in helping us navigate through the complex requirements.

The permit is a crucial achievement in WMTBC’s strategic plan for Thunder Point. WMTBC commissioned DirtArt some two years ago to prepare a trail audit and recommendations for a sustainable future for mountain biking at Thunder Point. WMTBC’s strategic plan involves continuing to work with WCC and DELWP to complete approved trail loops with surfacing, realignments and signage to establish Thunder Point as a safe and sustainable MTB destination and as a valuable resource for Warrnambool and the wider community. WMTBC looks forward to the continued support of WCC and DELWP to achieve this plan.

The club appreciates that it is required to manage the trails overgrown vegetation within the permit conditions, and will be organising training and working bees in the near future. Importantly the club does not support any unauthorised vegetation management works or riding south of the walking trail where culturally sensitive areas exist.

The planning permit will enable WMTBC to recommence running MTB events- watch this space!

Happy Riding!

WMTBC Committee
