A new approach to land management in NSW

On August 25 the new framework for land management in NSW commenced. It is a fairer and more flexible system for landowners with a focus on delivering triple bottom line outcomes.

The Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 and Local Land Services Amendment Act 2016 take advantage of the best available science and data to ensure a balanced approach to rural land management and biodiversity conservation in NSW.

The new approach to rural land management strives to deliver triple bottom line outcomes for land owners by:

  • Providing certainty and long term planning solutions that deliver balanced growth and value environmental assets
  • Supporting land owners with advice, new tools and products to make the right choice for their farm system
  • Creating more land use options through flexible codes and payments for private land conservation

Local Land Services is here to help. We will listen to your goals and work with you to tailor the right solutions to grow a sustainable business. Over the coming weeks we are holding information events across NSW (visit our events page). We can also arrange to visit you on farm or over the phone. Find out what the opportunities are for you.
