Member for Murray-Darling John Williams says he is trying to organise a Local Land Services (LLS) forum for Deniliquin ‘‘as soon as possible’’.

Mr Williams said a reference panel led by NSW Natural Resources Commissioner Dr John Keniry would be holding a series of regional meetings on the proposal.

‘‘I’m trying to get a forum in Deniliquin to allow the community to say how they want the Local Land Services established in this area,’’ Mr Williams said.

‘‘I’ve written to Minister for Primary Industries Katrina Hodgkinson and I’m waiting to hear back.

‘‘I’m asking that they conduct a meeting in Deniliquin as soon as possible.’’

People are invited to provide feedback about the proposed changes through the ‘Have Your Say’ website at

The Department of Primary Industry (DPI), Murray Catchment Management Authority (Murray CMA) and Livestock Health and Pest Authority (LHPA), all with offices Deniliquin, will be merged into one ‘super organisation’ as part of the LLS proposal.
