Recently the Minister for Planning, Anthony Roberts, launched the South East and Tablelands Regional Plan.

Administrator for Snowy Monaro Regional Council, Dean Lynch says the important document for the larger South East region shows the Snowies as an integral part.

The plan outlines a way the nine local government areas of the South East can work together and achieve outcomes that will ensure the region continues to grow.

One of the key directions of the plan is to develop the Snowy Mountains into Australia’s year-round alpine destination.

Mr Lynch says judging by the number of cars passing through the region over the weekend, the Snowy Mountains is well on its way to achieving its place as the nation’s leading alpine location.
