Land management program
Across the state of Tasmania, we are the custodians for land near where we operate. A variety of management issues exist on this land, which we look to tackle in a collaborative way.
We endeavour to work with other organisations (such as NRM associations and Greening Australia) to provide a sustainable management approach for the land we manage.
The aims of our land management program are to:
- develop collaborative approaches to manage the our impacts (and those of our contractors and partners) on Tasmania’s unique flora and fauna;
- engage with government agencies, community associations and private land owners to effectively manage lands across a range of tenure types and management responsibilities;
- provide advice across Hydro Tasmania to build an internal sustainable land management culture; and
- facilitate the sustainable recreational use of Hydro Tasmania land and water resources.
Our land management program covers issues arising in the areas of soils, flora and fauna-related issues, including:
- land tenure and associated responsibilities, including parks, reserves, crown lands and Hydro-owned land;
- hygiene protocols for weeds, pests and pathogens, including weed management priorities and methods;
- legal compliance and permitting requirements for land-related activities, including vegetation clearing, weed management obligations and public access;
- soil management procedures and techniques, including erosion control and managing quarries and blasting; and
- identifying and managing impacts on land ecosystems, including threatened flora and fauna.
