If you are planning a conservation project on your land, now is the time to lodge an expression of interest to be considered for one of Sunshine Coast Council’s Landholder Environment Grants.

The Landholder Environment Grants program allows council and private rural land owners to work together to protect the environment.

Expressions of Interest are now open and will close at 5pm on Monday, February 22.

When an expression of interest has been submitted, a conservation officer will arrange to visit the property and discuss the project in more detail with the owner. Projects may include the installation of fencing to restrict stock access to vegetation and waterways, revegetation to restore degraded areas, control of environmental weeds and the modification of fencing to make it more wildlife-friendly.

There are three stages in the Landholder Environment Grant application process:

Step 1 –   Expression of Interest: all applicants must submit an EOI form by 5pm, February 22.

Step 2 –   Site visit: a conservation officer will visit your property to discuss the project.

Step 3 –   Online application: following the site visit, applicants must complete an online application form.
