Queensland to introduce new vegetation laws to stop land clearing

The ABC’s Nick Wiggins reports (17.3.16) on the state government’s planned laws to stop the rate of land clearing increasing further.

‘The Queensland Government is set to introduce laws it says will stop “skyrocketing” tree-clearing rates in the state.

‘Deputy Premier Jackie Trad said the laws would close “loopholes” created by the Newman government.

‘The previous government relaxed rules in its changes to the Vegetation Management Act, allowing the clearing of native vegetation for high-value agriculture projects.’
