Applications for inclusion in the sensitive sites map must be assessed by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD). DPIRD reserves the right to ask any applicant for documentary evidence and to decline any application which fails to meet the guidelines.
If you believe that you have a sensitive production system and wish to register your interest please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org during the registration period. The following information is required:
- the address of your property
- your preferred contact details
- the full details of your production system
- relevant documentation to support your request, such as a copy of your organic certification certificate or aquaculture licence.
DPIRD will also contact current Sensitive Site registrants when registration is open, to remind them to check their details and advise of any changes.
While the Sensitive Sites map provides an information source for producers, it is vital they continue to communicate directly with nearby landholders.
Sensitive site definition
For the purposes of the map on this website, a sensitive site is a property with a commercial agricultural production system that its owner and DPIRD think may be particularly sensitive to impact from some activities on nearby land. This may be due to the nature of the production system or produce.
Examples of sensitive sites include certified organic or biodynamic systems, managed tree nurseries, or aquaculture, viticulture and horticulture.
