Agricultural Landscape Rehabilitation Scheme

The Tasmanian Government, in partnership with Tasmanian NRM Regional Bodies, has announced the Agricultural Landscape Rehabilitation Scheme (ALRS) to support recovery efforts following the June 2016 floods. 

Information Workshops are being held on Wednesday 25 January 2017 in the following locations:

Ouse Country Club 23rd Jan 2-4pm
Deloraine Rotary Pavilion 24th Jan 9-11am
Cradle Coast Authority Building (Burnie) 25th Jan 9-11am
Gnomon Room (Ulverstone) 25th Jan 2-4pm

The scheme assists flood-affected landowners and communities through funding projects aimed at rehabilitation of land and stream systems damaged as a result of the June 2016 floods. The focus of the program is to restore the capacity of the primary production sector and reduce impacts of future floods on productive land.

The scheme is open to landowners and communities in the twenty local government areas affected by the June 2016 flood. (Break O'Day; Burnie; Central Coast; Central Highlands; Circular Head; Derwent Valley; Devonport; Dorset; George Town; Glamorgan-Spring Bay; Huon Valley; Kentish; Latrobe; Launceston; Meander Valley; Northern Midlands; Southern Midlands; Waratah-Wynyard; West Coast; West Tamar)

The scheme targets private property and adjacent areas that have suffered physical damage as a result of the floods or areas where future flooding may present a risk to primary production. 



Landowners or community groups may nominate to participate directly in two types of works: 

•   River and stream resilience larger-scale work, such as revegetation, bank protection, stream alignment, and erosion management;  
•    debris clean-up smaller-scale works for landowners on productive land, such as timber and river cobble removal.
