Submission to the Agriculture and Environment Committee relating to the Vegetation Management (Reinstatement) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2016
Proposed changes to vegetation management law in Queensland are burdensome red tape, an erosion of the right to property, and breach a fundamental principle of the rule of law.
These changes are representative of a red tape trend in Queensland and across Australia hindering our economic growth, prosperity and development.
The Vegetation Management (Reinstatement) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2016 should not proceed.
