Biodiversity Strategy 2017–2030

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has prepared a Biodiversity Strategy for the Local Government Area.

This Biodiversity Strategy aims to guide and enable strategic growth and development while conserving biodiversity values by:

  • Identifying biological priority areas in LGA.
  • Identifying islands/patches of contiguous vegetation and where the key habitat linkages and connections are between this vegetation.
  • Identifying threats to biodiversity.
  • Defining Actions to protect priority areas and reduce threats.
  • Providing strategic direction and information to guide investment on private and public lands in a voluntary manner.

Council’s Ecologist, Dr Rebecca Montague-Drake will be presenting key aspects of the strategy, and will be available to answer questions on specific locations across the region.


Event: Biodiversity Strategy Information Session
When: 4.00pm – Tuesday 23rd of January 2018
Where: Rosewood Room - Wauchope RSL
RSVP: Thursday 18th January 2018 by return email or calling 02 65 864 465


Anyone wanting to know more about a particular site should provide the location prior to the meeting by contacting 02 65 864 465 or office@hastingslandcare.org.au.

The Biodiversity Strategy is a document designed to provide information and aid strategic planning. It does not change any landholder’s rights or responsibilities as defined under other legislation. Participation by private landholders in any initiative outlined in the Biodiversity Strategy will be purely on a voluntary basis.

A copy of the draft Biodiversity Strategy may be inspected online or at Council’s Customer Service Centre in Burrawan Street, Port Macquarie, Council’s Wauchope Offices, Council’s Laurieton Branch Office between 8.30am and 4.30pm on normal business days and the front counter of Council libraries. Free copies of the document can be obtained in each location.

An interactive map is also available to assist you in identifying how the strategy may affect your area.

Any person may inspect the Biodiversity Strategy and make a written submission until 28 February 2018. Please include your full name, postal or email address and contact details so that your submission can be formally acknowledged. Note that any submission may be made public, and public disclosure is required for any political donations or gifts (including to staff). Submissions are subject to the provisions of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009.
