Alleged National Parks land grab at Lake St Clair

Not many people would take much notice nor care if a large sign had been moved a few kilometres. But one TasTalks listener sure has. 

Doug from Queenstown calls in with concerns that National Parks & Wildlife have undertaken the movement of a sign by some 15km without due process near the Derwent Bridge at Lake St. Clair.

He believes that by moving the entrance sign, this changes the boundary lines of the National Park and means that new restrictions could apply to the surrounding area, such as Lake King William. 

Brian Carlton promises to follow up on this intriguing case. Have you noticed that the sign has been moved lately?
