Further consultation needed on Strategic Infrastructure Corridors Bill

23 September 2016

The Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) commends the Legislative Council on its decision to adjourn the Strategic Infrastructure Corridors Bill in order to allow further consultation on this complex and contentious piece of legislation.

“While the TFGA does not object to the legislation, we believe that further state wide consultation is required as this Bill will impact on all non-operative rail corridors throughout the State,’’ TFGA CEO Peter Skillern said.

“Many adjacent landowners are clearly unaware of the potential consequences of this Bill, as a result we believe that further consultation is necessary.”
