Queensland legislation changes to vegetation management laws

Are you concerned about Queensland’s harsh new vegetation management laws?

AgForce General President Grant Maudsley said “These laws will put more restrictions on how farmers manage their land to produce food, shut down new agricultural development and lead to perverse environmental outcomes that could damage rather than improve regional landscapes”.

Some of the proposed changes to vegetation management laws include:

  • Scrapping the process for high-value agriculture and irrigated high-value agriculture development applications;
  • Including any vegetation that hasn’t been managed for 15 years in the definition of high value regrowth; and
  • Replacing self-assessable vegetation management codes with the need to gain approval under an accepted development code.
