Opposition to proposed vegetation management laws

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Scott Sargood
66868 Warrego Highway

Total Signatures - 2400

Sponsoring Member: Ms Ann Leahy MP

Posting Date: 1/05/2018

Tabled Date: 1/05/2018

Responded By: Hon Dr Anthony Lynham MP on 30/05/2018

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the devastating impact that further Vegetation Management Laws and restrictions will have on the ability of Queensland landholders to sustainably manage vegetation regrowth/thickening and fodder harvesting of Mulga, and the economic downturn further vegetation laws and restrictions will have on local businesses and communities.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to recognise the need for Queensland landholders to be able to sustainably manage regrowth/thickening and the importance of using Mulga as a fodder, and not impose any further restrictions through legislation/regulation on fodder harvesting or through other Self Assessable Codes, legislation or regulation.
