ALL things environ- ment remain a top pri- ority for the Australia Pork Limited policy team, with significant implications for pro- ducers around waste management and land use.
At the same time, APL and the NSW Farmers Federation have come together to provide a submission to the NSW Government on its op- tions for a NSW agricul- tural land use planning strategy.

Urban encroachment on rural areas and com- plaints about develop- ment applications driven out of social media will be a major challenge to the strategy.
Kirsty brings a thor- ough understanding of government legis- lative and regulatory processes, which will support APL’s engage- ment.
The submission rec- ommended the use of National Environmental
However, there were concerns that proposed standards for manure, animal wastewater and effluent lack clarity around how high-value piggery waste would be regulated.
