Scrutiny of dog plan

THE North Coast Livestock Health and Pest Authority is calling for public comment on wild-dog management.

The authority, in consultation with Forests New South Wales, the Department of Environmental Climate Change and Water and landholders has produced a draft report that will be available for public scrutiny from April 4-29.

Senior ranger Dean Chamberlain said that when finalised, the plan could affect up to 15,000 ratepayers in the North Coast area.

“The reason it is up for public comment is to give people the opportunity to make a contribution before it is signed off and agreed on by all parties,” Mr Chamberlain said.

The plan will form a basis for a co-operative and co-ordinated control program for the next five years.

The draft can be viewed at www.lhpa.org.au/districts/northcoast or from North Coast Livestock Health and Pest Authority offices upon request.
