RLPB Director Quits

Small landholder representative Colin Brammall has resigned as a Director of the Braidwood Rural Lands Protection Board. He attended his last meeting in September, meaning he was a Director for one full year.

Colin said his full-time work commitments had changed and he could no longer guarantee to attend the half-day mid-week monthly meetings of the Board. As well, he believed he had achieved the two targets he set when elected.

The first target was to represent the 4-10ha ratepayers who had been swept into the system without warning, and without apparent benefit for paying the rates. A review of the system has recommended to the NSW Government that these small landholders be excluded. If adopted as expected, Colin will become ineligible to be a Director as he owns less than 10 ha.

The second target was to get the Braidwood Board to communicate with its ratepayers and explain the role for which it collected rates. The Board has now adopted a communication strategy that includes deciding, at the end of each monthly meeting, which of its decisions that day should be the subject of publicity.
