BPASS is a new portal created by the NSW Government that brings together Beekeeping Sites on Public Lands in areas managed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services, Forestry Corporation NSW and Local Land Services to allow beekeepers to apply for and manage their public apiary site permits and licences all in one place.
It provides a one stop shop for apiarists and improves visibility of available sites and is a key part of NSW Government's Policy for apiaries on public lands.
