Expression of interest sought for softwood and hardwood forestry representatives to join the LLC WAP Review Stakeholder Advisory Group

News article |

This is an opportunity for you to represent the softwood or hardwood forestry sector to inform the planning and management of water for sustainable use in the Lower Limestone Coast.

On 12 July 2022 the Limestone Coast Landscape Board (LC Landscape Board) announced that the review of the Lower Limestone Coast Water Allocation Plan would be commencing.

On announcement of the review the LC Landscape Board sought expressions of interest from individuals, industry and community group representatives for appointment to the Lower Limestone Coast Water Allocation Plan (LLC WAP) Stakeholder Advisory Group.

Representing the diversity of community, environment, primary production and industry in the Lower Limestone Coast, the Stakeholder Advisory Group will provide objective advice and recommendations to the LC Landscape Board towards the sustainable use, conservation and management of water in the Lower Limestone Coast Prescribed Wells Area. The Stakeholder Advisory Group was formed in August 2022.

On 20 October 2022 the Stakeholder Advisory Group met and discussed the representativeness of the group. The Stakeholder Advisory Group put a recommendation to the LC Landscape Board Governing Body to undertake an additional, targeted expression of interest process to seek a hardwood forestry representative. The LC Landscape Board has also been notified that the softwood forestry plantation representative is no longer able to represent the industry.

On 28 October 2022 the LC Landscape Board Governing Body considered this recommendation and the change to membership and resolved to undertake a short, targeted expression of interest process seeking a hardwood and softwood forestry representative for the Stakeholder Advisory Group.
