About the project: The Sydney-based absentee landholder project is coordinated and delivered by Greater Sydney Local Land Services (GS LLS). It provides information to absentee landholders about land management practices on rural properties and help them look after their land sustainably and responsibly. For absentee landholders, managing a property remotely can be challenging and could result in weed, pest and productivity issues, and might even affect neighbouring properties.
 
Landholders can attend a series of free informative evening workshops at convenient locations in Sydney on a variety of topics including pest animals, weeds, water, native vegetation, soil and groundcover, biosecurity and conservation. To date four workshops have been delivered with another four scheduled for 2016.  Additionally a new smartphone app - "LandSmart" - is being developed to provide useful information on sustainable land management at your fingertips. It will also help landholders find their nearest Local Land Services (LLS) office to receive further information and support, and nearby Landcare groups. The app is due for release in March 2016. For more information about the project, workshops or app contact Angela Maier  at absentee.project@lls.nsw.gov.au or call (02) 4724 2127.
