HOW TO MAKE SUBMISSIONS TO THE STATE GOVERNMENT'S TWO CALLS FOR FEEDBACK:

STAGE ONE to the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) due 23rd Feb 2018

STAGE TWO to the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) due 12th March 2018

STAGE ONE:
YOUR FEEDBACK TO THE EPA ON PAST LOGGING FOR WOODCHIPS IN OUR PUBLIC NATIVE FORESTS

Have your say on what you think about native forest logging for woodchips. This relates to the Government's long-overdue 5 yearly reviews of historical logging in our public native forests from 2004 to 2014. Report on the RFAs, 384 pages. This stage is not about the future of the Regional Forest Agreements - that is STAGE TWO. EASY, YOU CAN DO THIS! read on...

EITHER

A. Go to the Environment Protection Authority website and follow the instructions.

OR

B. Send an email (with your opinion on the way the forests have been treated) to: forestry.policy@epa.nsw.gov.au by 23rd February 2018, with an EPA COVER SHEET.

Your input will ONLY be considered if you have sent the cover sheet and if you have met the deadline for STAGE ONE, 23rd February 2018.

STAGE TWO:
YOUR FEEDBACK TO THE DPI ON THE FUTURE OF OUR PUBLIC NATIVE FORESTS

Say what you really think about logging of native forests in perpetuity. YOUR BIG CHANCE - you've got this!

Go here: Department of Primary Industries website and choose a community drop in session.

NEXT, EITHER

A. Click on "Have your say online", and fill in the form. PLEASE NOTE, don't be fooled by this form: There are ambiguities in the content of this page. By selecting different options, this will be regarded as your having agreed to renewal of the Regional Forest Agreements. Our suggestion is to not click on any of the selections but indicate in all the empty fields "I do not want the RFAs renewed" or similar.

OR

B. Send an email (stating your opposition to the renewal of the RFAs) to: forests@industry.nsw.gov.au by 12th March 2018, with a DPI COVER SHEET.
