Planning and infrastructure minister Brad Hazzard will be fronting a public meeting in Lismore next week organised by state MP Thomas George as a direct result of concerns expressed to him following the release of the government’s Strategic Regional Land Use Policy.

The forum, to be held on Wednesday December 5 from 10am till noon in Lismore City Hall, will also have a number of departmental bureaucrats in attendance to answer questions raised by the community.

‘This is a great opportunity for the community to come and ask the experts any questions they like about the government’s policy,’ Mr George said

The bureaucrats will include: Brad Mullard, executive director, Mineral Resources; Dr Regina Fogarty, director, Office of Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security; Rob O’Neill, director, Water Policy & Planning, Office of Water; Dan Keary, director, Strategic Regional Policy, Department of Planning & Infrastructure; Greg Yeates, team leader, Regional Planning, Department of Planning & Infrastructure.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
