Access to Pastoral Lease Crown Land


Print

In the first session of the 53rd parliament, the Pastoral Land Management and Conservation (Renewable Energy) Amendment Bill 2014 was introduced to the Legislative Council.

When the Pastoral Land Management and Conservation Act was originally drafted, renewable energy development was not envisaged. A Bill to amend the Act makes it possible for a wind farm developer to apply for a licence to build and operate a wind farm on pastoral lease land. A wind farm development can co-exist with pastoral activities in the same way as occurs on freehold farming land. The Bill also expedites access to pastoral land for solar energy projects.

The Bill is to provide renewable energy investors with access to 40 per cent of South Australia's land mass that is Crown land subject to pastoral lease.
