The NSW Lib-Nats Government's DraftMarine-Based Industry Policy – Far North Coast & Mid North Coast NSW. Read it and weep. "The policy applies from the Queensland border in the North to Tea Gardens in the South. Its main more navigable waterways include: Tweed River, Richmond River, Clarence River, Coffs Harbour and, Hastings River. Less navigable waterways include: Brunswick River, Evans River, Bellinger River, Nambucca River, Macleay River, Camden Haven River, Manning River, Wallis Lake, Port Stephens and some of the major tributaries of the more navigable waterways." "For the purpose of this policy, a marine-based industry is “an industry that depends upon access to a navigable waterway”. Without limiting the generality of this definition, it is considered that the Marine-based Industry Policy - Far North Coast & Mid North Coast NSW will apply mainly to activities that include: boat building, refit and repair but may include other specialist industries such as the manufacture of wave power electricity generators, off-shore drilling platforms, off-shore aquaculture pens, etc"

A thought to ponder:
In case of bushfire or flood - do you have an emergency evacuation plan for the family pet?
