The NSW Government announces a review of the Native Vegetation Act

25 Jun 2013

Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner has announced a review into the Native Vegetation and Threatened Species Conservation Acts. The NSW government has been reviewing the Native Vegetation regulations since November 2011 but had initially indicated that the Acts would not be reviewed.

The deputy premier informed the National Party State conference that the government will undertake a comprehensive overhaul of the Native Vegetation Act, the Threatened Species Conservation Act and related biodiversity legislation and replace them with a single, modern statute that better delivers effective environmental protection and enables sustainable economic and agricultural activity”.

W&B will be monitoring the review process as it unfolds.
