PGA RELUCTANT TO PRAISE DEC ON LORNA GLEN STATION

2010-12-14

The Pastoralists and Graziers’ Association (PGA) Pastoral Committee chair and Vice President Ruth Webb-Smith is reluctant to give unequivocal support to the recent announcement by DEC on the work undertaken at Lorna Glen Station.

 

Mrs Webb-Smith said, “this is an opportunistic media headline from DEC in response to the damning Parliamentary Inquiry into DEC’s management of former pastoral leases”.

 

“The work done at Lorna Glen Station by DEC has some benefits to the environment but the on-going costs should be cause for concern.”

 

“DEC has not maintained the infrastructure built up over many years of successful pastoral activity – such as water sources, access tracks, heritage buildings.

 

“It is pleasing, however, to see that DEC is now taking the issue of improved fencing, as well as feral animal and weed control seriously on Lorna Glen Station and we hope that this translates to other stations under DEC control.”
