Land management reform designed to give farmers more flexibility and to improve biodiversity are on their way in New South Wales.
The NSW Government's biodiversity reform package will become law next year after the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 and the Local Land Services Amendment Act 2016 were passed in both houses of NSW Parliament.
NSW Farmers' members are relieved that they will finally witness the repeal of the unworkable and detrimental Native Vegetation Act.
Examples of how the Native Vegetation Act has created adverse environmental impacts can be found on this site.
We look forward to watching farm productivity and biodiversity prosper in New South Wales.— More about the campaign
