Fencing Northern Basin Riverbanks Program
NSW Local Land Service is currently seeking Expressions of Interest from landholders under round one of the NSW Fencing Northern Basin Riverbanks Program.
The Fencing Northern Basin Riverbanks Program in NSW provides practical support for landholders to protect valuable ecological sites and improve native fish habitat across the northern Basin.
Other eligible activities under the program include off-stream stock watering points, control of exotic woody weeds, minor erosion control works, revegetation and river re-snagging to protect native fish and contribute to a healthier river system.
Funding is available for eligible landholders, community groups and Aboriginal land managers to implement on-ground projects. To receive support and determine if your project is eligible for incentive funding, we are inviting individuals or groups to submit an Expression of Interest.
Expressions of Interest's will be assessed as they are received against a set of criteria including priority target river reaches, and proximity to existing riparian fencing.
