Regional Landscape Levy

The Regional Landscape levy (previously known as the NRM levy) is a State tax. Councils are required under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019 to collect the levy on all rateable properties on behalf of the State Government.  The levy helps to fund the operations of regional landscape boards who have responsibility for the management of the State’s natural resources.   These responsibilities include regional landscape planning, water allocation planning, community capacity building, education and compliance activities.

For further information regarding this levy, or the work the levy supports, please visit the Northern & Yorke Landscape Board at www.landscape.sa.gov.au/ny or phone (08) 8841 3400.
