Implementation timelines

Amendments were made to the Water Management (General) Regulation 2018 on 17 December 2021. These amendments replace those that were disallowed on 6 May 2021. The disallowance and subsequent NSW Legislative Council inquiry into the NSW Government’s management of floodplain harvesting mean that implementation dates for the NSW Floodplain Harvesting Policy remain uncertain. The dates specified in our reports and guidelines may therefore be superseded.

This section shows the expected timelines for various tasks in implementing the Floodplain Harvesting Policy.
