Boots On The Ground – Local Land Services Ready To Help


Local Land Services is ready to help land managers across the South East understand and utilise the new opportunities that became available on August 25 under the Land Management and Biodiversity Conservation Act.

Local Land Services is ready to assist land managers across the South East to make the most of the new system. The NSW Government has funded Local Land Services to get extra resources and staff to deliver this new service and make it as simple as possible for landholders.

“Our staff are ready to work with land managers across the South East. We want to make it easier for land managers. We can listen to your goals and ideas, and work with you to help determine how the system can support your farm plan and business needs,” commented Kristian Holz, Group Director Sustainable Land Management, Local Land Services.

The new approach strives to deliver triple bottom line outcomes for land managers by:

  • providing certainty and long term planning solutions that deliver balanced growth and value environmental assets

  • supporting land managers 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.

The newly created Sustainable Land Management (SLM) team, at Local LandServices are available to help land managers with the new system.

They can provide tailored advice on applying the new land management code of practice, accessing incentives for protecting native vegetation and where required navigating approvals for clearing or development.

“Boots on the ground will ensure farmers know their options and are supported in making good, short, medium and long-term choices for their business,” said Kristian.

“The new framework will provide a better system than what is currently available. It will increase flexibility for farmers and will provide better environmental outcomes across NSW”.

Farmers are uniquely placed to support environmental outcomes for the broader community, themselves and future generations.

Over the coming weeks, Local Land Services will hold a series of information sessions throughout NSW focusing on the new framework and its benefits to landholders.

This includes the following events:

  • Goulburn Soldiers Club, 31 October 10am

  • Cooma, The Alpine Hotel, 7 November 12pm

  • Bega Valley Civic Centre, 8 November 9am

  • Batemans Bay Community Centre, 9 November 9am
