The EIANZ SEQ would like to invite you to attend our final breakfast event for 2013. The event will give practitioners and proponents a head start on what to expect in biodiversity regulation and management in 2014.
The event will discuss recent and proposed changes to:
- the Vegetation Management Act 1999 (VM Act);
- the regulation of biodiversity under the State Development Assessment Provisions (SDAP) and State Planning Policy (SPP); and
- protected plant management under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 (NC Act).
It will provide valuable information from those directly involved in the development of these changes. Importantly, speakers will also cover how the new regulatory framework may affect the day to day work of practitioners and proponents.
James Coutts, Executive Director - DSDIP
James will be speaking about changes to the VMA, SDAP and SPP, as well as their interrelationships.
Jackie McKeay, Nature Conservation Services Manager - DEHP
Jackie will discuss the proposed changes to protected plant regulation under the NC Act, including mapping, survey guidelines, permitting processes, exemptions and relevance with other components of the regulatory framework.
Steve Jarman and Matt Davis, Ecologists, Arup
Steve and Matt will speak about the application of these changes from a practitioner (i.e. consultant) perspective and critique of how the changes support conservation of biodiversity.
This event will count as 1.5 points towards your EIANZ CEnvP Professional Development Log.
