Niall Blair media release: Minister listens to wild dog board concerns
08 June 2017
NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair, has confirmed the Wild Dog Destruction Board (WDDB) will remain a stand-alone entity, following community consultation.
Mr Blair said after months of discussions with key stakeholders about the potential transfer of the WDDB staff to Local Land Services (LLS), the transfer will not go ahead.
Instead, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will be developed between LLS, the WDDB and the NSW Department of Industry, Lands & Forestry.
The WDDB will remain a semi-autonomous agency, supported by NSW Department of Industry, Lands & Forestry.
