The community is encouraged to have its say on the renewal of NSW Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs), covering Southern NSW and Eden. The Southern Regional Forest Agreement (RFA) is one of three RFAs in New South Wales. The Australian and New South Wales governments signed the Southern RFA on 24 April 2001, establishing the framework for the sustainable management of the forests in the Southern RFA region.
RFAs outline the intent to have sustainable management and conservation of Australia’s native forests. It is a requirement of the Southern RFA that its performance is reviewed every five years.
Environment groups, landholders, industry and members of the broader community are invited to provide their input on the long-term management of the state’s forest resources.
DPI will host a drop-in session at the Coachhouse Marina Resort, Batemans Bay on Wednesday, February 14 from 12.30pm-2pm. For those opposed to the RFAs - From Dawn Walker MP
