Agricultural Landscape Rehabilitation Scheme
The Tasmanian Government, in partnership with Tasmania’s NRM Regional Bodies, has announced the Agricultural Landscape Rehabilitation Scheme (ALRS) to support recovery efforts following the June 2016 floods. It was launched on the 19th of December at a property in Paradise (the media release can be viewed here).
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 ALRS 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 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; and
• Debris clean-up smaller-scale works for landowners on productive land, such as timber and river cobble removal.
