Review of the Land Regulation 2009

The key legislation that sets out the framework and objectives of state land administration is the Land Act 1994 (the Land Act) and the Land Regulation 2009 (Land Regulation). The Land Regulation contains a number of operational matters, and sets out how provisions of the Land Act are applied.

The Land Regulation is due to expire in September 2020. Prior to remaking the regulation, the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy is reviewing the regulation to ensure it is still necessary, efficient, and working as intended.

Regulations automatically expire (or sunset) after 10 years, unless action is taken to extend or remake them. This review applies only to the Land Regulation, and not the Land Act.

A public consultation paper: Review of the Land Regulation 2009 has been released as part of the review process to seek feedback from key stakeholders and the community on proposed amendments. In addition to the issues raised in the consultation paper, the department welcomes all submissions relevant to the Land Regulation.
