Joint bid to preserve WA’s bushland

THE Real Estate Institute of WA, the Soil and Land Conservation Council and the World Wide Fund for nature (WWF) have joined forces in a bid to encourage people to buy bush properties for conservation.

WWF WA program leader Denise True said the partnership had resulted in a program called Bush Brokers.

“The program’s main aim is to encourage greater private investment into the ownership and management of bushland,” she said.

“The impetus for initiating this project was borne from the increasing demand for uncleared land in WA, with an increasing number of people looking to purchase bushland retreats and their own patch of wilderness.

“By improving the ability of the real estate industry to stimulate and service this demand we are helping conserve the bushland as well as strengthening an emerging niche market.”

On October 30 Bush Brokers will host an information day to outline and discuss issues relevant to the buying and selling of bush properties.

Representatives from the conservation, accountancy, legal, planning and real estate sectors will provide advice.

The information day is one of several programs the project is implementing.

A web site designed to attract buyers and provide a platform for agents will be online next month.

A case studies book exploring the experiences of people who have bought bush properties and the management issues that need to be considered will also be released soon.
