IPART draft report proposes funding review for Land Services
THE Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal has issued a draft report that proposes a funding framework for the new Local Land Services boards established by the NSW Government.
Local Land Services boards will provide advice on production for farm businesses, biosecurity including plant and animal health, pest control, natural resource management and emergency response.
The organisation will operate from January.
IPART chairman Dr Peter Boxall said NSW was highly dependent on a successful rural sector and a funding framework was required to support the services that protect this.
Stakeholders are invited to respond to this paper via the IPART website by October 15 at http://www.ipart.nsw.gov.au.
