Southern Mallee Private Reserves

Reserves on Leasehold land in the Southern Mallee Planning Group Region. These Reserves are parcels where the lease conditions have been altered to ensure conservation in perpetuity. The tenure remains Western Lands Leasehold. The conditions are to prohibit grazing and actively manage the areas for conservation. These reserves and conditions were agreed to by leaseholders, the former NSW Department of Land and Water Conservation and the Western Lands Commission. The reserves are to offset clearing of other areas of vegetation for cropping by the leaseholders. The Southern Mallee Planning Group was set up under the previous Native Vegetation Conservation Act and the clearing was approved under the EP&A Act. The Southern Mallee Plan specifically includes the development of a Comprehensive Adequate and Representative reserve system within the overall framework of the plan. This plan also sets targets for representation of each vegetation type in reserves.
