Land resources compliance
Queensland’s land and vegetation resources are vital for our economic, social, environmental, and cultural wellbeing and we all share responsibility for using them fairly and sustainably.
Regulating these natural resources involves working closely with our customers, stakeholders and community to achieve sustainable economic prosperity while also helping to protect our environment.
- Manage state land for the benefit of all Queenslanders, ensuring it is appropriately used and environmental and cultural values are considered and protected.
- Manage native vegetation to achieve sustainable outcomes for land use and the environment.
