Australia: [Event-Sydney] Biodiversity conservation reforms: what you need to know
Last Updated: 15 September 2017

The NSW Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, the Local Land Services Amendment Act 2016 and associated regulations, commenced on 25 August 2017 overhauling the legislative and policy framework for biodiversity conservation and management in NSW.

The associated Biodiversity Assessment Methodology (BAM) will provide a consistent approach to biodiversity impact assessment and offsetting for most projects in NSW.

These changes will affect councils and other approval authorities and developers.

In this breakfast seminar, Holding Redlich and GHD will discuss the practical implications of the reforms and how they will impact you.

We will cover:

  • An overview of the new legislation and offsetting rules
  • The transitional arrangements and what they mean for current and planned projects
  • The four different types of assessments under the BAM
  • The role of the Biodiversity Conservation Trust and the trust fund
