White Cliffs landholder Louise Turner is the chairman of the new Local Community Advisory Group.

Mrs Turner has been a landholder in the district for more than 16 years and she has a great interest in the land and the environment.

“I believe if we want good things to come out of a community then we firstly have to put time and effort in,” she said.

“As the saying goes, ‘it takes a community to raise a child’ and with the Local Land Services Western Region still in its infancy, advisory groups will play an important role.”

Western Local Board Chairman, Tom Hynes, welcomed Mrs Turner’s appointment as chairman of the Broken Hill, Tibooburra and Wilcannia Local Community Advisory Group 

“Louise Turner has a wealth of knowledge - not only is she an experienced land manager, but she also has more than 20 years of experience in both private enterprise and in the public sector, working in natural resource, sustainable agriculture and conservation management,” he said.

“There are still vacancies on the Local Community Advisory Groups and I urge people to get involved to help these chairs make a difference.”

The Local Community Advisory Groups were created to provide input into the development of plans, projects and services and to be a link between the Western Local Board and the community.

Each group will consist of six Western Local Region residents, with at least three positions on each group representing local industry. Local Community Advisory Group members will be expected to attend at least three meetings a year and sitting fees will be paid.
