Public Hearings on National Forests Amendment Act
Below is information on the the public hearing process
which has been extended. Although the extension has been specifically
granted to solicit comments on the Amendment
Bill from "communities in forested areas across the country",
we feel that it would be
beneficial for our members, particularly small-scale growers, to attend
the hearings being planned in their respective areas.
Areas of concern relate to:
Custodianship of the state's forest resources.
Enforcement of sustainable management of forests.
Unfortunately we do not know the exact venues for the meetings at present but will circulate these once known.
FSA will be making an official submission on the Amendment Bill shortly.
