The current claim by LHPA against me and my Voluntary Conservation Agreement property of 12ha will be reviewed by the magistrate in Lismore Local Court today, June 26.

I hope some supporters of reform for this extortion racket will attend.

Below is my final point of defence, previously lodged with the plaintiff and describing its actions against me. No response has been received from them yet.

The plaintiff has incompetently or deliberately engaged in false invoicing, failure to provide receipts for payments and lodgement of forms to avoid further penalties, denial of having received past annual returns and refusal to accept appeals against arbitrary charges until monies are paid first.

Instead it has wantonly fined, harassed and prosecuted rightful landowners for omissions of unlawful payments for services that have no relation to the landowners’ actual use of their land. It has indulged in irrelevant assessments of property that clearly have connection to its traditional bias towards the pastoral industries and withheld badly needed services to control stock diseases and pest eradication.
