New Albury premises unites services on one site
30 October 2015
Murray Local Land Services has consolidated its three Albury offices, bringing together all its local agricultural advisory, biosecurity, veterinary and natural resource management staff on one site.
The newly refurbished office, at 931 Garland Avenue, will be officially opened by the Member for Albury, Greg Aplin, on Friday 30 October.
Murray LLS General Manager, Gary Rodda, said the new office was a significant step forward for the organisation.
"With all our Albury-based people in one building, we're now in a far better position to offer our services to our customers," he said.
"Once people know where we are, they can call or visit one site to access the staff or resources they need."
Murray LLS is part of a recently formed state network of Local Land Services organisations that deliver services to farmers, groups and industries, including agricultural advice, plant and animal biosecurity, natural resource management and emergency management.
It is currently undergoing a strategic planning process, and its draft strategic plan 2015-2020 is now open for public comment.
Mr Rodda said the draft plan was the result of three years of work.
"We've been working hard on this plan with our community, our stakeholders, our producer groups and our investors – the NSW and Federal governments – and we're now at a point where we need people to have their say on it," he said.
"What have we got right? What have we missed? Where should be we placing our focus? What would you like to see in the plan? Without that input, we really can't make this a local plan for our local people."
The Draft Murray Local Strategic Plan is available at open.murray.lls.nsw.gov.au/lsp, or as a hard copy at your nearest Murray LLS office.
