Partnerships

Local Land Services works  collaboratively to encourage shared responsibility by involving communities, industries and non-government organisations in relation to the provision of  local land services.  We work with farmers, Aboriginal  communities, local government, state agencies, Australian Government and  industry in the delivery of agricultural advice, natural resource management, biosecurity and emergency management services.

Landcare NSW

Local Land Services works in partnership with Landcare NSW to deliver strategically-aligned programs and actions to support the full potential of Landcare volunteers.

The two organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding in September 2015 that strengthens the partneship for the benefit of communities and landscaped across NSW.

One of the key projects aligned to this partnership is the $15 million Local Landcare Coordinators Initiative, announced by NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair in September 2015.

This four year project is designed to renew the government-community relationship and unlock the full potential of the thousands of volunteers in the Landcare Network. More than 60 part time coordinators have been employed throughout NSW.

Landcare Coordinators will help build and support Landcare and community networks across the state over three and a half years. The initiative is jointly managed by Local Land Services and Landcare NSW and facilitated by the Natural Resources Commission (NRC).

Department of Primary Industries

Local Land Services works in partnership with the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to deliver locally-relevant research to farmers and landowners in a timely manner. Our officers work with DPI Industry Development Officers across NSW, including experts in agronomy, livestock, horticulture, irrigation, soils and climate, to ensure the latest industry specific knowledge and practices are delivered to customers.

Catchment Action NSW

Catchment  Action NSW is a NSW State Government natural resource  management initiative.

Catchment Action NSW funding from the State  Government will continue and evolve in 2014, with Local Land Services taking  responsibility for Catchment Action NSW funds.

Local government

Local Land Services works in  partnership with local councils to ensure best practice management of natural resources, including weed management and pest control in areas under council jurisdiction.

We provide guidelines, training and  incentive programs and assists councils with weed and pest management plans.
