Following the 2003 bushfires and with the assistance of a financial
grant from the A.C.T. Government, Corin Forest has revised its business
plan and development plans for the future. In doing so we have been
mindful of recent studies instigated by the A.C.T. Government and
undertaken by select committees and consultants whose reports and
recommendations were formulated via wide consultation with stakeholders
and the community in general.
We refer to four reports published since June 2003 pertaining to
Tourist Drive 5, of which Corin Forest is an integral part. The
Government has already commenced implementing a number of the recommendations
and committed around $30 million to date. More will follow.
If nothing else the 2003 disastrous bushfires has resulted in,
for the first time a comprehensive look at Tourist Drive 5 and has
realized its considerable potential.
A fully developed Corin Forest has now been estimated at $31 Million,
of which $2 Million has been expended to date as showcased on our
current website. The following remains outstanding:
(a) 12.5 hectares of prepared terrain to enable skiing, snowboarding,
(b) serviced by a full snowmaking system.
(c) 3 x 600 metre long chairlifts.
(d) 15,000 sqm of artificial surfacing.
