Strategic Regional Land Use Policy
In 2012, the NSW Government introduced the Strategic Regional Land Use Policy to better manage the potential conflicts arising from the proximity of mining and coal seam gas (CSG) activity to our high quality agricultural land, in some parts of the State.
Since the introduction of the Policy the Government has introduced safeguards for some 5.3 million hectares of residential and strategic agricultural land across the State from the impacts of new coal seam gas and mining activity.
