WALGA consults with its members on a variety of topics to inform our advocacy and service offering to members.
The scope of our requests for feedback reflects the range of operations conducted by Local Government.
Please see below for items for which we are currently seeking feedback from our members.
Biosecurity Position and Recommendations Paper
Based on feedback and further consultation with Local and State Government WALGA has now produced a draft Biosecurity Position and Recommendations Paper
The purpose of this document is to:
- outline WALGA’s existing and recommended future policy position on post border biosecurity
- summarise the sector's feedback to WALGA that underpins the recommended policy position
- provide a number of policy initiatives for the State Government to consider either independently or as part of the review of the BAM Act, and
- provide a number of initiatives considered beneficial to the overall governance and coordination of post border biosecurity under a 'shared responsibility', community based approach.
Local Government is invited to comment on WALGA's recommended draft policy position and the recommendations to the State Government before it is submitted to WALGA's State Council for its consideration. The closing date for comments is Tuesday, 17 January 2017.
