Land law

Kate Galloway

The Nature Conservation and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2015 has been introduced into Queensland parliament. The Bill reinstates various environmental protections that were removed under the previous government. The aim of the previous 2013 amendments was to reduce red tape in land access in Queensland. In doing so it increased access to national parks and otherwise protected areas. The new Bill again increases the number of protected areas, including the reinstatement of the national parks (scientific) class of protected area. Importantly also in advancing the purpose of nature conservation, the Bill removes the rolling term leases for grazing on national parks through amendments to the Land Act 1994.
