The service holder – your government authority or Landtrust partner – imposes the easement for you and regularly checks the property to ensure that the agreement is respected. Note 2 If the boundaries of the agreement coincide with established features, such as main roads, rivers or railways that cross the land, the feature may be taken up as part of the boundary of the agreement without the addition of other dimensions. A deposited compilation plan is acceptable if the boundaries of the proposed protection zone comply with the NSW LRS guidelines for established plans – that is, the new boundaries are parallel or perpendicular to the boundaries of the parcels, or the new boundary is a straight line between confirmed points on two parcel boundaries. The usual conditions of a filed plan apply. The agreement of a lessee, mortgagee, lessee or covenant of a registered lease, mortgage, royalty or Covenant royalty that agrees to be bound by the agreement is filmed with the transaction. The plan defining the extension of the environmental protection zone must be one of the following, depending on the necessary precision of the definition of the boundaries of the zone. Situations in which the position of the boundary of the area is more important (for example. B where areas of high conservation value are closely adjacent to areas of high human development) require greater surveying accuracy. A proposed protection zone (as defined in the agreement) usually concerns one part of a piece of land, while the rest includes the house, couplings and other infrastructure constituting the “living” and “working” parts of the land. Therefore, a plan is needed to define the part of the plot called the part of the plot of high conservation value and subject to the agreement. The boundary between the “conservation” and “workers” sectors of the parts of the land is often irregular and ill-defined. Next: Important facts (and myths) about conservation easements In exchange, you get tax and other economic benefits and the satisfaction of knowing that your forests are protected during the period of the agreement. Conservation agreements are also called conservation easements and are gaining ground.

More than 100,000 conservation easements, covering an area of 22 million hectares, are in effect in the United States. In order to protect environmental values (flora and fauna, wetlands, ecosystems, etc.) that exist on private land, without the complexity and cost of acquiring the country by forced takeover, different government authorities may prepare a conservation agreement between the Authority and the registered owners of the country concerned. . . .
