Review of Plantations and Reafforestation Legislation

NSW Department of Primary Industries is inviting submissions on the review of the Plantations and Reafforestation Act 1999 and Plantations and Reafforestation (Code) Regulation 2001.

The review provides an opportunity to improve the clarity, practicality and effectiveness of regulating plantation forestry. It has the potential to reduce the compliance burden and modernise the plantations regulation in line with best practice environmental standards and recent updates to other key NSW forestry legislation.

The review will be specifically looking at:

  • The Plantations and Reafforestation Act 1999
  • The Plantations and Reafforestation (Code) Regulation 2001.

A public consultation period will commence on Monday 3 May and run for eight weeks until Sunday 27 June.
