PGA pushes own land reform plan
Written on the 2 July 2017
The Pastoralists and Graziers Association has developed a land tenure reform proposal to present to the State Government.
PGA president Tony Seabrook said a way forward for the pastoral industry had been thrashed out by the Pastoral Lands Board during a recent meeting in Broome.
The proposal has come just weeks after WA Lands Minister Rita Saffioti committed to picking up where the previous government had failed with its attempt at rangelands reform.
Reform enabling changes to the Land Administration Act had been a long and arduous wrestling match between Mr Seabrook and former lands minister Terry Redman.
Last year, Mr Redman vented frustration in a leaked letter accusing the PGA of failing its members and misrepresenting the powers of the Pastoral Lands Board, a statutory body that would have been scrapped under his proposed reforms.
