Below is this week’s summary of events, grants and scholarships presented on Landcare’s weekly segment with Anne Delaney on Riverina ABC Breakfast Radio.
Changes to NSW land clearing laws: The new Biodiversity Conservation legislation has been released by the NSW Government for consultation. Information is available on the website https://www.landmanagement.nsw.gov.au/ It is complex legislation and involves major legislative reform including the Act covering Local Land Services.
There will be an 8-week consultation period with 6 open sessions to be run by the Govt across the state. On May 18 in Wagga there will be a staffed information stall to answer questions and provide printed material. There will be no formal presentation. There will also be some ‘technical workshops’ with local councils.
For people reading this for the first time……. welcome. Landcare interest and activity in the Riverina is building momentum and as such, we continue to expand our list of Landcare contacts. This not only includes Landcare groups in the Riverina but the many other stakeholders and individuals who contribute in a variety of ways.
