Welcome to the Lord Howe Island Board
The Lord Howe Island Board is a statutory authority established under the provisions of the Lord Howe Island Act 1953. The Board is responsible to the NSW Minister for the Environment and comprises four Islanders elected by the local community and three members appointed by the Minister.
Lord Howe Island's unique qualities received worldwide recognition when it was included in the World Heritage list in December 1982. The Island's Permanent Park Preserve supports its rich biodiversity of endemic and significant species and communities.
