Lord Howe Island Land Allocation Review - Preliminary Government Response

In 2014 the Hon. Ken Handley AO QC was engaged by the NSW Government to review the land allocation and tenure systems on Lord Howe Island and provide advice to the Minister for the Environment.

The purpose of the review was to identify options for different land allocation methods and forms of tenure which would maintain and protect the unique environmental and cultural values of Lord Howe Island.

After extensive consultation the review has been completed. The Government has developed a preliminary response which supports the majority of the recommendations. Before finalising the response, feedback is sought from the Lord Howe Island Community.

The report and Government’s preliminary response can be downloaded below or found at: www.haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au

Hard copies are also available from the Lord Howe Island Board Administration Office.

The closing date for written feedback on the preliminary response is Monday 28 November 2016.
