The Land Tenure Pathway for Irrigated Agriculture (LTPIA) initiative provides a boost to regional Western Australian communities through the development and diversification of the agriculture and food sector.
The LTPIA has been developed to help stimulate greater economic development and investment opportunities across the State by removing land tenure constraints and building capacity to enable expansion and generation of agricultural economic activity. The initiative supports and provides clarity, consistency and transparency in decision making processes under the Land Administration Act 1997 (LAA). It clarifies the process for changing existing Crown land tenure to a form of tenure suitable for large scale irrigated agriculture. Changing tenure is complex and takes time; the LTPIA makes this process clearer.
Did you know?
The LTPIA clarifies the process for changing existing Crown land tenure to a form of tenure suitable for large scale irrigated agriculture.
The LTPIA aims to reduce the regulatory burden in Western Australia by outlining a clear pathway to develop land for irrigated agriculture.
The LTPIA will assist you in obtaining more secure land tenure (e.g. converting a portion of a Pastoral Lease or other Crown land to long term leasehold or freehold) to attract investment and allow diversification into high-value intensive irrigated agriculture where water is available.
It is designed to make the process clearer and streamline information, providing the tools to enable land tenure change and increase development opportunities to diversify land use. The LTPIA ensures you are aware of what is required prior to applying and what actions you need to undertake throughout the process.
You should use the LTPIA when:
All proposals will be proponent-driven. This means that you (the proponent) will be responsible for initiating, funding and driving the process. This will include, but is not limited to:
The LTPIA process summary diagram outlines the four stages of the pathway process.
