Strategic regional land use policy

Rural conditions Australia New South Wales

The policy package sets out a range of initiatives to better balance growth in the mining and coal seam gas industries with the need to protect important agricultural land and water resources.
With the mining industry continuing to grow in regional areas of the State and CSG beginning to emerge as a new energy resource in NSW, it is crucial the proper framework is in place for the protection of our valuable agricultural land. The Strategic Regional Land Use Policy is the NSW Government’s response to this challenge.
It puts in place a number of measures to balance the often competing needs of these industries and, crucially, to ensure our most important agricultural and water resources are protected.
