Saving Wee Waa Petition

Many rural towns are being affected by the Murray-Darling Basin Plan - it is a water reform that removes productive water for no real environmental gain. This affects real people, real communities and real futures.

In our video Saving Wee Waa, the local community came together to showcase our town's community spirit and to highlight the harmful effects caused by the Basin Plan.

We are here because we want to be here

We live in Wee Waa because we want to be here - don't take that choice away from us by putting our town into permanent drought. The solution is #morethanflow science tells us this is right, common sense tells us this is right - the environment will benefit if we put the remaining funds into measures like fishways, carp control, resnagging the river, reducing cold water pollution etc.

NON-COMPLYING BULLBAR EXEMPTION ORDER

NON-COMPLYING BULLBAR EXEMPTION ORDER

In 2014 a Ministerial Exemption Order was established to provide some tolerance for people who have inadvertently purchased non-complying bullbars.  That Ministerial Order has been extended until 16 September 2017.  The NSW Centre for Road Safety is consulting with industry, manufacturers and enforcement agencies before any changes to the guidelines takes place.  The Ministerial Order allows some tolerance from the standard but still ensures that key areas of the bullbar’s design consider safety such as having minimum ground clearance, forward vision and lights, indicators and number plates remain visible.  If you have any doubt as to whether your bullbar is compliant, more information can be found here:

Update from Wee Waa – A town that is not giving up without a Struggle

Update from Wee Waa – A town that is not giving up without a Struggle

Thursday, 15 September, 2016

Stop the Waste of Taxpayer money!  Don’t let the basin plan kill our towns and flush taxpayer funds down the river for no outcome.
 
The downstream environment already receives on average 80% of the water that flows in the Namoi River, the basin plan proposes to take an additional 20 000 megalitres to send downstream to never reach the target environmental sites and for the majority of the time for this water to sit in dams being stored and paid for by the Australian taxpayer.  When and if this water is released and if it was able to be delivered to the end of the Namoi River it would then most likely be extracted legally by downstream licence holders.

Putting the spotlight on farm succession planning

Putting the spotlight on farm succession planning

The report is available for viewing via the Chapman Eastway website

Putting the spotlight on farm succession planning
Farm succession planning has become more complex and more important than ever, yet farming families are still largely failing to have the necessary discussions and adequately prepare for the future.

The lack of preparation means many farmers are discovering their options are limited when it comes to retirement and the transfer of ownership and control.

SAVING WEE WAA

Community fights battle on two fronts

Namoi farmers have been no stranger to taking on corporations and governments over the big issues.  The issue of coal seam gas and mining have required real community strength to ensure the water resources are protected.  This time they are fighting on a different front - to ensure their town’s survival by keeping access to the water which has already been assessed as sustainable.

Wee Waa water restrictions will choke town

Wee Waa water restrictions will choke town

Northern Daily Leader 19 August

WEE WAA farmers say their town will be left in permanent drought if the government reduces the amount of water it can draw from the Murray Darling basin.

Namoi Water executive Jon-Maree Baker says the community is facing a 30 per cent drop in employment if the Murray Darling Basin Authority's goes ahead – or 70 full time jobs and $38 million annually out of the economy.
