The Tasmanian Regional Forest Agreement (RFA) is due to expire in November 2017.  The Federal and Tasmanian governments are committed to establishing a “rolling 20-year extension” of the RFA, with some minor amendments to the monitoring, communication, review and dispute resolution clauses.

Feedback on the proposed extension and amendments is invited by 12:30pm on 23 December 2016.  Read more and have your say.

Drop-in sessions to discuss the proposed extension are being held by the Department of State Growth:

  • 5 December 2016, 4.00–7.30pm at Peach & Plum Rooms – Huon LINC, 1 Skinner Drive, Huonville
  • 7 December 2016, 4.00–7.30pm at Wellers Inn, 36 Queen Street, Burnie
  • 8 December 2016, 4.00–7.30pm at The LINC, 51 King Street, Scottsdale

For those unable to attend these sessions, an online questionnaire is available to assist in making comments.
