Pastoral land a priority after recent Auditor General report

The Auditor General’s report on pastoral lands has highlighted the need for sustainability and adequate monitoring. Despite the fragility of pastoral lands in Western Australia being evident for decades, the report noted a dramatic reduction in monitoring and research. Lands minister Rita Saffiot said she tasked the Pastoral Lands Board to consult with pastoral lease holders on policy development, regulatory improvement and potential statutory change.
