Summary The Landscape South Australia Bill has now been introduced to Parliament and made publicly available. This represents an important step forward for the State Governments intention to reform the way natural resources are managed in South Australia.

The Bill is intended to create a new framework for natural resources management that focuses on a simpler and more accessible system that delivers for local communities and the natural environment. The legislation (if passed) will replace the Natural Resource Management Act 2004. 

The timescales for debate of the Bill by Parliament is currently unclear. However, the LGA will keep the sector informed of progress via LGA Circular, and will also provide councils with an analysis of aspects of the proposed legislation relevant to the local government sector in the coming weeks.  

Minister Speirs has made the Landscape SA Bill, Summary of the Bill and a map of proposed boundaries of regional landscape boards available for perusal (documents linked above).

Please direct queries in relation to LGA activities in this area to Victoria Brown, Senior Policy Advisor via email: victoria.brown@lga.sa.gov.au or ph. 08 8224 2053.
