We acknowledge the vital role rural and regional Australia plays at both a State and National level. Our action plan for regional NSW will return rights to property owners, protect local jobs and industries and support regional communities.
In line with this, the Party strongly supports the sustainable utilisation of Australia’s resources. However, we believe hunters, fishers, farmers, and other outdoor enthusiasts are well positioned to identify issues in sustainability and care for our natural environment. We reject a ‘lock away’ approach to the natural environment put forward by the major parties, particularly the Greens. Instead, we believe public lands should be actively managed.
