Snowy Monaro Regional Council assures the community that access to the Lake Jindabyne shared trial network will remain in place under current access arrangements.
“Council continues to work closely with Snowy Hydro on our Lake Jindabyne shared trail network as options for future trail extensions are explored,” explains Mayor, John Rooney.
Snowy Hydro has recently called for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for a number of its surplus land holdings around Jindabyne. This process will enable Snowy Hydro to assess the level of interest in the land and allow interested parties to put forward offers that will result in new opportunities for the town and region.
Some of these land parcels are located around the Jindabyne and East Jindabyne lake foreshore areas, which the Shared Trail passes through.
Council has an existing agreement with Snowy Hydro for the Lake Jindabyne Shared Trail corridor from Cobbon Crescent to the Jindabyne Dam wall. The trail network is supported by Snowy Hydro and remains a valued asset for the community and the growing summer tourism market.
Arrangements are in place to ensure public access in this area will not be affected by the EOI process and potential land release, or any development in the future.
