FINES ISSUED FOR FORESTRY BREACHES NEAR MOUNT SEAVIEW

A private forestry consultant, a logging contractor and two landholders have been fined a total of $33,000 for unauthorised and illegal native vegetation clearing near Mount Seaview.

The New South Wales Environment Protection Authority issued the fines following investigations into private native forestry operations on three adjoining properties at Forbes River.

It was discovered the logging, which took place between July and October 20-16, occurred well after the expiry of approvals and without a valid Forest Operation Plan.

One property was logged without the knowledge of the landholder.
