EPA Board invites regional community views

08 April 2010

Members of Tasmania’s North-West community have an opportunity to meet with the Board of Tasmania’s Environment Protection Authority (EPA) in Devonport on April 22.

The five-member Board will host a series of one-on-one meetings with individuals to discuss a broad range of topics, from the roles and functions of the EPA to air monitoring and noise regulations.

EPA chair John Ramsay said the meetings would enable the Board to articulate its role and contributions to date and to listen to views of the community.

“One of the aims of the EPA Strategic Plan is to make it easier for stakeholders to contact the EPA Board,” Mr Ramsay said.

“These one-on-one meetings are a chance to put a name to a face and explain how the EPA works, what we do and how we work alongside other agencies and regulators.”

The Devonport meeting follows a similar community engagement event in Launceston late last year.

To make an appointment with the Board, interested community members are invited to register their interest by contacting the EPA on (03) 6233 6714 during business hours or emailing heather.shearer@environment.tas.gov.au

Registrations of interest close on 15 April 2010.
