The Regional Landscape Levy
The Regional Landscape Levy (RL) (previously known as the NRM Levy) is a State Government imposed tax, which councils are required to collect on behalf of the State Government under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019 with all funds going to the State Government and not the City of Salisbury.
All enquiries or concerns about the Regional Landscape Levy should be directed to the Green Adelaide Board at Landscape South Australia or phone (08) 8204 1910.
Where the Levy is Used
The levy helps to fund the operations of regional landscape boards who have responsibility for the management of the State's natural resources. These responsibilities include regional landscape planning, water allocation planning, community capacity building, education and compliance activities.
Salisbury Council's involvement in the Levy
Salisbury Council is applying to the Board for funds for works and initiatives in the Salisbury Council area to ensure that monies paid by Salisbury residents are spent in the Salisbury area. The Council also encourages local community groups to make applications for environmental initiatives.
Result of Non Payment of the Levy
Council is obliged by legislation to collect the Levy on the behalf of the Board. Any unpaid Levy joins the normal collection process associated with Annual Rates. Fines will be charged on outstanding Levies.
