Animals rarely get the full consideration they require when planners get together to devise the new laws, new developments and new guidelines. By making a submission in the consultative stages of planning you can make sure they do!
Public Consultation on the revised Kangaroo Commercial Code
In 2018, AgriFutures Australia contracted researchers from NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to review and update the kangaroo commercial code. People and organisations interested in the welfare of kangaroos and wallabies are now invited to assess how well the revised code will ensure the humane commercial harvesting of these species in Australia. This public consultation is your opportunity to contribute to the development of acceptable animal welfare requirements for the commercial harvesting of kangaroos and wallabies. The feedback will help to shape the final code, which will be provided to state and territory governments for their noting and endorsement. A short survey to assess public views and attitudes towards the commercial harvesting of kangaroos is included as part of the public consultation process.

Target setting for Victorian Energy Upgrades
The Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007 requires annual targets for reducing emissions be set in the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2018 for the 2021 to 2025 periods by May 2020. In order to establish these future targets, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is required to prepare a Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) to assess the costs and benefits of different target options. A RIS is required under the Subordinate Legislation Act 1994 for regulatory proposals that are ‘likely to impose a significant economic or social burden on a sector of the public’. The Department invites you to comment on the proposed changes.
