Landholders across NSW will receive welcome news in their mailboxes over the coming weeks, with their Local Land Services (LLS) rates showing a zero balance for 2021.

LLS Chief Executive Officer, David Witherdin said the rate relief is part of the NSW Government’s latest drought support package and will allow LLS to provide the crucial support landholders need as they work towards drought recovery.

“This rate relief means landholders will still have access to our technical experts, programs and training, while making valuable savings,” Mr Witherdin said.

“Rates are a vital source of funding for LLS, and they go a long way to supporting the work of our dedicated biosecurity officers and district veterinarians across the state.”

“This work is crucial after several years of drought, so I encourage landholders to reach out to their closest LLS office, and take advantage of their local expertise as we navigate the long-term recovery process, together.”

“Whether it’s helping landholders manage feral pests, or investigating a health issue in livestock, you can count on your LLS team to provide practical, hands-on advice.”

The work supported by rates includes:

  • Coordinating and supporting landholders to control pests and meet their legal obligations
  • LLS vets’ animal health programs
  • Supporting agriculture and animals during emergencies
  • Supporting stock identification systems

Mr Witherdin said while rates are expected to return to normal in 2022, it is hoped landholders can make the most of the improved seasonal conditions across large parts of the state.

“With a zero balance on this year’s rates notice, landholders can make the most of the savings, keep more money on-farm, and plan for the future,” Mr Witherdin said.

Head to the LLS website at https://www.lls.nsw.gov.au, contact your closest office, or call 1300 795 299 if you would like more information about your rates notice or to find out more about the services offered by LLS.
