Community Advisory Groups
As a requirement of the Local Land Services Act, each local LLS board has established one or more local community advisory groups for its region.
Community advisory group members are suitably qualified to serve on the group and representative of the interests of the local community and stakeholders in the region.
Hunter LLS has four community advisory groups (CAGs):
- Lower Hunter Community Advisory Group
- Upper Hunter Community Advisory Group
- Manning Great Lakes Community Advisory Group
- Aboriginal Community Advisory Group
The groups work with members of the LLS board on key issues related to agriculture, plant and animal biosecurity, emergency management and natural resource management.
The groups are intended to provide high level advice to LLS on the full range of its services and functions. They form a key part of LLS' community engagement framework and will guide the strategic direction of Hunter LLS.
Each group consists of representatives across primary industry groups, government, and other interest groups from across the Hunter.
