How we will implement the NSW Floodplain Harvesting Policy

We will:

  • use the best available facts, data, and scientific analysis to underpin the licensing framework, and explain this work to you
  • set clear rules for floodplain harvesting and consult with you about them
  • ensure the rules are followed and;
  • improve floodplain harvesting management over time.
