COM­MU­NITY sup­port and re­silience are vi­tal when the un­ex­pected hap­pens.

Build­ing Re­silience Through Com­mu­nity is the theme for Prop­erty Rights Aus­tralia’s an­nual conference to be held in Chin­chilla at the Chin­chilla Palms Mo­tel on Satur­day, June 3, reg­is­tra­tions open at 8am, with the conference start­ing at 8.30am.

The key note speaker at this year’s PRA conference is Tim Saal, man­ager at Ru­ral and Re­mote Men­tal Health, with Tips and Tools to Man­age Stress in a David and Goliath Fight.

There are a num­ber of on­go­ing is­sues across dif­fer­ent re­gions where landown­ers are con­fronted by a strug­gle.

Speak­ers will look at is­sues such as:

The Hopeland com­mu­nity ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the con­tin­u­ing fall­out from the Linc En­ergy dis­as­ter.

Across a much larger area of the Su­rat and Bowen Basins, the high­way to CSG pro­duc­tion has a num­ber of pot­holes in which peo­ple are fall­ing into.

Across all of Queens­land, landown­ers are aware of the veg­e­ta­tion laws, but there is lit­tle aware­ness of Na­ture Con­ser­va­tion Act trig­ger map­ping which can catch peo­ple out, even on land cleared many decades ago.

The conference will have an up­date about Fed­eral en­vi­ron­ment laws and spe­cially the im­pact on those landown­ers with High Value Agri­cul­ture per­mits.

A pre­sen­ta­tion will cover the Great Arte­sian Basin and Re­lated Aquifers wa­ter plan and changes needed to en­sure re­silience for the GAB and de­pen­dent com­mu­ni­ties.

This year PRA on the af­ter­noon of June 2 is con­duct­ing a bus field trip vis­it­ing prop­er­ties show­cas­ing is­sues that will cov­ered in pre­sen­ta­tions on the fol­low­ing day.

The tour will be from 1pm to 4pm and places are lim­ited, so RSVP as soon as pos­si­ble.
