Register for vegetation management workshop

Landholders seeking clarity about Queensland’s Vegetation Management laws are encouraged to attend a workshop in Collinsville at the end of this month.

NQ Dry Tropics’ Landholders Driving Change project is organising a full day workshop to inform landholders on how their properties may be impacted by changes to the laws. Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRM&E) representatives will be attending to explain what is achievable under the current legislation, and to answer landholders’ questions.

Event organiser LDC project manager Lisa Hutchinson said the aim of the workshop was to provide a safe platform for landholders to hear first-hand from the Department of Natural Resources, and to have their concerns, issues and questions addressed.

“This is vitally important because landholders need to get answers and the Department of Natural Resources needs a platform to get accurate and current information out to the graziers,” she said.

“DNRME officers will talk through the process and explain what landholder and contractor legislative responsibilities are to ensure compliance with legislation.

“The workshop will also explain what is achievable for property management, including clearing to prepare for or recover from natural disasters, managing encroachment, installing property infrastructure and weed control,” she said.

Held on Wednesday, August 28 at Collinsville Rodeo Grounds, numbers are unrestricted but registration is essential. For further information and to register contact Lisa Hutchinson on 0427594192 or lisa.hutchinson@nqdrytropics.com.au.
