Community forums will be held around the State during May, June and July to discuss pastoral lease options and seek feedback leading up to next year’s lease renewals.
This week, pastoralists should receive draft pastoral lease options in the mail from the State government.
Forums will be held at the following locations:
Kalgoorlie – Overland Motel, Tuesday, May 13
Marble Bar – Marble Bar Civic Centre, Thursday, May 22
Carnarvon – The Wool Shed, Thursday, May 29
Karratha – Lotteries House, Thursday, June 5
Fitzroy Crossing – Fitzroy River Lodge, Wednesday, June 11
Mt Magnet – ANZAC Hall, Monday, June 16
Perth – Crown Casino, Wednesday, July 2.
Pastoralists have until July 11, 2014 to provide feedback, which would be used to finalise the lease options, and would be available for signing by pastoralists later this year.
