A MESSAGE FROM BSA CHAIRMAN MR LEE MCNICHOLL: Vale George Bender – A farmer’s sacrifice for land and water
The University of Queensland (UQ) is conducting a research project to better estimate the amount of water extracted by groundwater bores in and around the Surat Cumulative Management Area (CMA).
Members, non-members, landholders, interested community members are all welcome to come along and tell us what issues you’d like BSA to be focussing on and how we can support landholders in the most effective way.
Thank you to those who attended our AGM recently. The evening proved to be an excellent opportunity for sharing and dialogue between researchers, politicians and landholders.
Regional Queensland deserves better. Agricultural producers did not deserve to be labelled environmental vandals under the previous government and they don’t deserve the slur made by Minister Andrew Cripps when he said…
Help us keep up the fight for a better future for our farms, families and communities.
BSA committee members Neil Cameron and Peter Shannon represented BSA at the Parliamentary Committee hearing in Toowoomba (on 19th August) on the increasingly notorious Mineral & Energy Resources (Common Provisions) Bill.
BSA is urging all landholders to attend next week’s public hearing on the State Government’s Mineral and Energy Resources (Common Provisions) Bill 2014. This potentially could be one of the most significant changes to the resource legistlation since the change to the land access code.
