North Coast Local Land Services represented at Primex
06 June 2014
Landowners attending Primex are being encouraged to visit the North Coast Local Land Services stand to meet representatives from the newly formed organisation.
Board members and staff will be available over the three day period to meet with local landowners and answer any questions about the new organisation. It's also an opportunity for landowners to identify services relevant to their needs and seek advice from a range of specialist staff.
Kent Lee, North Coast Local Land Services Chair, says "Primex is an ideal opportunity for the six board members and l to meet the landowners we're representing on Local Land Services".
Local Land Services is a new organisation, formed on 1 January, 2014, that brings together into a single entity the former North Coast and Mid North Coast Livestock Health and Pest Authorities, extension services of the Department of Primary Industries and the Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority.
"The focus of Local Land Services is to prioritise services on a regional basis, so contact and communication with our ratepayers and North Coast landowners is very important", says Mr Lee.
The Chair and Board will be available at the Local Land Services stand, site N15 on Friday 20 June, between 1-2pm.
Local Land Services staff present at Primex will be seeking to enrol eligible landowners for any future elections, and collecting the contact details of those who are interested in staying in touch with the organisation.
"Getting the right information, into the hands of the people who need it is a priority for North Coast Local Land Services. And for that reason we are asking people to subscribe to our free communication alert service".
Also present at Primex will be some of North Coast Local Land Services expert staff, who will be available to answer general inquiries from landowners. Experts in animal health and diseases, biosecurity, ecology and sustainable agriculture will all be present at different times over the three days.
