Members Meeting: 10:30am Saturday 20 Sept 2014
opportunities and dilemmas with non-native woody plants in forest restoration.
Professor Carla Catterall is our guest speaker at the next members meeting, you may have seen her on the Norman Creek Restoration video. She is adapting her Professorial Lecture recently presented at Griffith University on the Role of Non Native species in Habitat Rehabilitation. Do those weeds have some benefit in our rehabilitation sites?
Members of SOWN and BRAIN
From: Best Planning
Unfortunately all our relevant officers are unable to attend that particular date to present on the planning bills.
We have however, just today placed some presentation recordings on our website (I've provided the link below). They are very detailed and targeted towards planning practitioners; however the Planning Reform Overview from Mr Greg Chemello provides a good overview of the reform agenda and what the planning bills mean.
Please let me know if that video is of assistance.
Please feel free to give me a call to discuss (sorry I went to email you but noticed there was no number).
Would it be possible for someone from the Department to make a public presentation to the SOWN(Save Our Waterways Now) group and to the BRAIN group at the same time. A possible venue is Ashgrove Library, 24th September, 2014 at 7.30pm.
Could you let me know as soon as possible whether a presentation can be made so that I can formally book the room>
Thanks for your consideration.
LawJam 7 - Planning Law Overhaul - September 15
Join EDO for another exciting and very topical LawJam evening. The Queensland government has proposed significant changes to planning laws which affect your rights to have a say in planning and development decisions. EDO Qld will be focusing on the draft Planning and Development Bill and draft Planning and Environment Court Bill, which are set to repeal the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 (Qld). The changes are significant and will affect all planning and development in Queensland. Come along to learn how these changes may affect you and how to make your voice heard. Read more about the proposed changes here.
