NEW South Wales landholders can now have their say on local strategic plans developed by Local Land Services, with all 11 regional plans on exhibition until early June.
The local strategic plans are the blueprints for individual Local Land Services regions, outlining the way core services — spanning natural disaster response, biosecurity outbreaks and pest animal management — will be delivered to address regional issues and priorities.
LLS executive director – regional operations, Rob Kelly said Local Land Services is now seeking feedback from landholders to make sure the plans are focussing on the issues they are experiencing first-hand.
“These plans have been developed within all 11 Local Land Services regions by our staff and key stakeholders, to ensure our customers receive effective, regionally specific support.
“We want to hear directly from landholders, and this feedback will help shape the way we operate,” Mr Kelly said.
“We know landholders across the state have a lot to deal with at the moment, but with several options to have your say, we hope you can find the time to provide your valuable insights.”
All 11 local strategic plans are currently on public exhibition, and can be viewed and downloaded via the ‘Have Your Say’ platform, www.haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au/lls-plans.
Using the platform, feedback can be provided until Sunday, 6 June 2021 by filling out a quick online survey or uploading a formal written submission.
Mr Kelly said the local plans set a vision for the next five years and will support the delivery of the State Strategic Plan 2020-30.
“Many of the identified local priorities span across regions and are important to industry on a large scale, including natural disaster response, biosecurity outbreaks and pest animal management.
“Being strategically positioned to respond to the needs of our customers at both a local and a state level is critical to our ability to be here when it matters,” Mr Kelly said.
Landholders can contact their closest Local Land Services office or call 1300 795 299 if they have questions or need assistance to submit their feedback. More information about Local Strategic Plans is available on the Local Land Services website, www.lls.nsw.gov.au.
