Property Rights Australia will hold its 11th annual conference at Roma on June 12-13 under the theme of “Proactive Protection of Landholder Rights”.
PRA chair Joanne Rea said key issues on the agenda at this year’s conference include the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and resource sector impacts on landowners.
The first day involves a full itinerary of property visits including a tour of a full scale developing coal seam gas field and connecting infrastructure for CSG fields including high voltage Powerlink transmission lines. Local landholders will discuss their experiences during the tour.
A full-day conference on day two will include guest speakers from law firms that specialise in representing landholders, particularly in the Surat Basin.
State Member for Warrego Howard Hobbs will open the conference and Nationals Senator For Queensland, Barry O’Sullivan will be the keynote speaker.
Another session involving three speakers and a Q&A forum will be devoted entirely to the issue of protecting underground water resources.
“Even if you are totally unaware of any imminent resource projects there are simple practical measures the landholder can undertake now with property bores that will give some protection to water supply in the future,” Mrs Rea said.
