Have your say on the draft Pastoral Lands Bill 2020 and the future of South Australia’s pastoral rangelands

What is being decided?

Last year we ran a public consultation on the future of South Australia’s pastoral rangelands inviting the community to provide their views on the future management of the pastoral rangelands.

We heard from those who live on and manage the pastoral rangelands, Aboriginal organisations, other industry sectors such as tourism and mining, and from the general public.

Based on this feedback, we have drafted the Pastoral Lands Bill 2020, which aims to highlight the value from the rangelands, while continuing to maintain the environmental and productive condition of the land for future generations.

The Bill is intended to replace the current Pastoral Land Management and Conservation Act 1989 to:

  • reflect the modern needs of South Australia’s pastoral industry,
  • support diversification of land use,
  • facilitate economic growth, and,
  • ensure the land remains ecologically sustainable.

We've put together a video to help you understand the draft.

We are now inviting you to provide feedback on the draft Bill.

How can your input influence the decision?

Your feedback will help inform the refinement of the Bill, prior to lodgement in Parliament for consideration in 2021.

What are the next steps?

Once final feedback is gathered, it will help refine the content of the Bill, before it is finalised and prepared for introduction into Parliament for consideration in 2021.
