Biodiversity legislation review

The Independent Biodiversity Legislation Review Panel presented its final report (PDF 1.4MB) to Government on 18 December 2014. The report included recommendations to improve the legislative and policy framework for biodiversity conservation and native vegetation management in New South Wales. In March 2015, the NSW Government committed to implementing all 43 recommendations in the report.

On 3 May 2016 the NSW Government released a draft Biodiversity Conservation Bill, draft Local Land Services (Amendment) Bill and supporting products for public exhibition.

These documents and information about making a submission are available on the NSW Government's Have Your Say web page.
