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.

Murray Darling Basin job shock as water buyback hits farms

Murray Darling Basin job shock as water buyback hits farms

NATALIE KOTSIOS, The Weekly Times August 3, 2016 12:00am

UP TO 35 per cent of agricultural jobs have evaporated from communities in the Murray Darling Basin’s upper reaches under the Federal Government’s water clawback plan, startling new data shows.

The “horrific” figures for basin towns in Queensland and northern NSW — garnered from new research by the Murray-Darling Basin Authority — have led to renewed calls for water recovery targets to be lowered, as the socio-economic effects are fully considered.

Federal air safety watchdog causing 'enormous damage' to regional aviation:

ABC Broken Hill By Sofie Wainwright and Cherie von Hörchner

The airline Regional Express says over-regulation by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has cost it millions of dollars and could eventually force the closure of some services.

Regional Express, also known as Rex, said CASA had caused "irreparable" damage to regional aviation because of safety rules introduced over about a decade.

One Book One Region

One Book One Region

From The Narrabri Shire Council

There’s nothing quite like cuddling up to a good book during the winter months and over the next month, Narrabri Shire Libraries will be participating in the ‘One Book, One Region’ promotion through Central Northern Regional Library.

The concept is now in its second year and is designed to have everyone in the region read and discuss the same book by ‘paying it forward’ when you have finished reading it.

The ‘One Book One Region’ program takes the idea of a book club and expands it to cover an entire region. The book featured this year is “The Dry” by Jane Harper. It’s a mystery and is a very captivating read.

Flights Between Narrabri, Moree And Brisbane Ready To Launch

July 8 2016 Regional airlines Fly Corporate

Regional Airline Fly Corporate are today pleased to announce that following formal Port Inspections, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority have approved the addition of Narrabri and Moree to their Airline Air Operators Certificate. This clears all Regulatory barriers and approves the Airline to commence flights between Brisbane, Narrabri and Moree.

Mr Andrew Major, CEO of Fly Corporate said, he was pleased with the progress of the positive and cooperative negotiations the company were having with the Narrabri Shire Council in relation to commencement of services and is looking forward to similarly positive discussions at a meeting with the Moree Plains Shire Council next week. Mr Major said that satisfactory completion of these discussions with both Councils would enable Fly Corporate to commence flights in late August or early September.

“Currently the only options for travelling between Brisbane, Narrabri and Moree is a gruelling six-hour drive – making our approximately 75-minute flight time a highly desirable option that has long been on the radarMr Major said.

Anger over miner’s attempt to change transport

Jamieson Murphy July 7, 2016 Northern Daily Leader

WHITEHAVEN Coal is attempting to water down the approval conditions at the Maules Creek mine rather than fulfil them, concerned residents say.

The company must transport 90 per cent of the mine’s workforce to and from the facility via shuttle bus – in April last year it was fined $3000 for failing to do so.
