About the management plan
The Office of Environment and Heritage issues licences under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 to persons seeking to harvest or grow whole protected plants for commercial purposes.
This management plan refines and consolidates the existing licensing framework to deliver on two objectives: first that regulation is targeted toward species at risk from unsustainable harvesting and second that best practice management is applied consistently across NSW.
