CTSJ3423 - Conservation Zone Discussion Paper (Closed)


The adopted Corporate Business Plan (CBP) of the Shire includes an action pertaining to the Shire’s Conservation Zone program. The CBP action seeks to “Conduct formal review of the existing Conservation Zone initiative to enable its possible expansion to other natural areas of high significance.” The Shire has prepared a discussion paper which concludes with a series of questions we want your feedback on!

The current Conservation zone initiative aims to assist landowners that have conservation worthy fauna and flora on their private properties, to protect it by rezoning the property to enable conservation of the land. Various incentives are then provided to support landowners who voluntarily seek to have their land included, given the obligations to manage the property according to the conservation values. 

Where can I view the discussion paper?

 This discussion paper detailing the background, benefits and process required to join the initiative is available below.

How can I comment?

This discussion paper is open for comment for 60 days, commencing on 17 December 2020.

If you would like to comment please do so in writing by 5pm, 15 February 2021 quoting reference SJ3423.  

Submissions may be delivered by e-mail to info@sjshire.wa.gov.au, by mail or in person to 6 Paterson Street, Mundijong.

In addition to a written submission, a survey with six questions that will allow the Shire to determine the future of the initiative is available here

The survey is open to all residents and landowners and will be of particular relevance for landowners that may be interested in the initiative to get their properties zoned for conservation.  

Your input to the process is valued and will be presented to Council in a report once the engagement process has concluded.
