Support diversification in the WA Outback

    Dear Ministers,

    I congratulate you and the WA Government on this milestone announcement to create economic diversification in the WA Outback through changes to the Land Administration Act 1997.

    Landholders in the WA Outback have been calling for change for many years and these proposed changes will offer new leases for tourism, conservation, carbon farming and Aboriginal economic development.

    The proposed private conservation leases will allow environmental groups to protect native flora and fauna, creating long-lasting benefits for people, nature and the economy.

    I strongly support the amendments to the Land Administration Act and the benefits it will create for landholders in the WA Outback, however I encourage the government to maintain protection of native vegetation, soil and land condition on diversified leases.

    I encourage you to consult with Traditional Owners and leaseholders who will be impacted by these proposed amendments.

    I look forward to seeing further details on the proposed amendments. They have the potential to create the framework to address long-term challenges facing the WA Outback, providing a more diversified and resilient economy, while protecting and restoring nature.

    Yours sincerely,

    Support economic diversification in the WA Outback

    The WA Government has announced proposed changes to the Land Administration Act after several years of landholders calling for change.

    The amendments could create new opportunities for people and nature in the WA Outback, so it’s crucial that we urge government to ensure conservation, diversification, and restoration is a priority in the new Land Administration Act.

    The proposed changes could: Create growth in the carbon farming market in WA.

    • Allow for private conservation leases to help restore and preserve native flora, fauna and landscapes.
    • Allow diversification into other enterprises such as tourism and Aboriginal economic development.
    • Encourage more people to live and work in the Outback – creating economic benefits for people and regional communities.
    • Create more opportunities for small landholders to earn different income sources.
    • Create greater regenerative potential for overgrazed properties.
