Property rights to feature at conference
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.
