LGA received a response from DEW supporting the refusal of regional landscapes boards to pay any ‘Establishment Costs’. They have obtained legal advice from Norman Waterhouse lawyers.
Under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019, councils can apply to their regional landscapes board for reimbursement of many of the costs they incur in collecting the Landscapes levy.

The Landscape South Australia (General) Regulations 2020 Part 4 establishes a scheme for recovery of costs by Councils for their contribution to the Landscape Boards. The regulations provide for the reimbursement of establishment, transitional and ongoing costs for the collection of the Regional Landscape Levy. The amount that can be claimed is indexed each year in line with CPI.
