Probity review into floodplain harvesting licensing

In 2018, the department commissioned legal firm, Maddocks, to complete a probity review of the floodplain harvesting works approvals process. The review provides probity advice on certain aspects of implementation of the Healthy Floodplains Project. These include:

  • registration of interest (ROI) process
  • irrigator behaviour questionnaire (IBQ)
  • water infrastructure plan (WIP) processes

It found the licensing processes were lawful and well-documented and the eligibility criteria were consistently applied.
