Private Land Conservation

Vegetation Conservation Program

Native flowers

As part of the Environment Levy program, Council assists landholders to retain remnant endangered ecological communities on their property with the aim of conserving wildlife habitat and to create corridors of vegetation within the shire.

This program is for private property that is registered with Land for Wildlife and that has 2 hectares or more of high value conservation land.

By entering into a conservation management agreement, landholders may obtain free technical advice and a financial contribution of up to 50 per cent of the total cost of work including: fencing stock out of sensitive areas, weed control, re-vegetation and provision of alternative stock water, up to a maximum value of $10000 per property.
