Explanatory Note

This Bill amends the Conservation Easements Act to

(a) mirror the proposed new Community Easements Act;

(b) clarify that easements under the Conservation Easements Act are primarily dedicated for the protection of biodiversity and natural processes; and

(c) remove reference to conservation easements made for the purpose of protecting, restoring or enhancing land that contains palaeontological features since this would be covered by the proposed new Community Easements Act.
