NSW biodiversity and land management reforms draft regulations and products
NSW biodiversity and land management laws: Draft regulations and products on public exhibition – EDO NSW submission
June 2017 – Download all submissions combined
This group of submissions makes over 200 recommendations on the regulations and other instruments that are being implemented to support the NSW Government's biodiversity and land clearing law reform package passed in 2016.
EDO NSW raised a number of key concerns that were not addressed in the 2016 changes. While it is not possible to fix the deficiencies in the laws now they have been passed, the current round of consultations presents an opportunity to insert some protections, procedural safeguards and transparency into the subordinate instruments.
