Terry Ryan, the independent consultant tasked with undertaking the Livestock Health and Pest Authority (LHPA) Review today released the schedule of his community consultation meetings that will take place across the State from 24 October.
Mr Ryan said 16 public meetings will be held across regional NSW to provide him with the opportunity to hear community views on the State’s LHPAs first hand.
“The high number of submissions already received show there is considerable interest among farmers and other key stakeholders in the LHPA review,” Mr Ryan said.
“These regional consultation meetings will provide a further opportunity for stakeholders to express their views directly to me to inform the review process.
“Potential options, the role of the LHPA and other important issues will also be discussed at the meetings.”
