Partnerships

Local Land Services works  collaboratively to encourage shared responsibility by involving communities, industries and non-government organisations in relation to the provision of  local land services.  We work with farmers, Aboriginal  communities, local government, state agencies, Australian Government and  industry in the delivery of agricultural advice, natural resource management, biosecurity and emergency management services.

Landcare NSW

Local Land Services works in  partnership with Landcare NSW to deliver strategically-aligned programs, as well as unlocking the potential of Landcare volunteers.

The two signed a Memorandum of Understanding in September 2015 that will strengthen the partnership between the organisations for the benefit of communities and landscapes throughout NSW.

As part of the $15 million Local Landcare Coordinators Initiative, announced by NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair in September last year, more than 60 part-time coordinators have been employed by these successful organisations.

Landcare Coordinators will help build and support Landcare and community networks across the state over three and a half years. The initiative is jointly managed by Local Land Services and Landcare NSW and facilitated by the Natural Resources Commission.

Four online tools are now available to help landholders determine whether their clearing activities require approval.
