What have I missed?

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council (PMHC) has recently commenced preparation of a Biodiversity Strategy for the Local Government Area (LGA). The Biodiversity Strategy will seek to provide the following outcomes:

  • Inform development assessment and assist with ‘biodiversity offsetting’ for urban development.
  • Help landholders wishing to maintain or improve natural assets on their land.
  • Provide Council with information to assist with future landuse strategies and major infrastructure works.

Recently expressions of interest were sought to create a Community Panel involving key stakeholders to ensure:

  • The community understand what the Biodiversity Strategy is and its objectives;
  • That the community have the opportunity to comment on the project methods and outcomes and the relevance of this to strategic planning across the LGA.

A panel of experts has also been developed to ensure that the Strategy is well informed and based on the best knowledge available.

Consultation on the initial stages of this project has concluded. Make sure you are registered so that we can let you know about any future opportunities to have your say.
