Land managers encouraged to report storm damage
06 June 2016
Local Land Services, in partnership with NSW Department of Primary Industries, will be assessing agricultural damage following the significant rainfall, storms and flood activity across the NSW coastline at the weekend.
Local Land Services staff in the North Coast, Greater Sydney and South East regions are available to receive individual damage reports and, if necessary meet with farmers to assess damage as a result of this storm activity.
Executive Manager Tim Ferraro encouraged land managers in these regions to call
1300 795 299 or contact their nearest Local Land Services office to report storm damage.
NSW DPI is working with industry representatives to understand and respond to the storms at the whole of state level.
“It’s important that farmers and land managers contact us so we can understand the full extent of damage across the state,” Mr Ferraro said.
“Local Land Services and the NSW DPI will collate the information reported by farmers into an Agricultural Natural Disaster Report for government.”
Regional customer services staff are ready to assist land managers who need to make a report.
