This Act, consisting of 292 sections divided into nine Chapters, aims to protect land that is highly suitable for cropping; manage the impacts of development on that land; and preserve the productive capacity of that land for future generations. To achieve its purposes, this Act: (a) identifies areas in which land that is likely to be highly suitable for cropping may exist (called ‘potential SCL’); and (b) has provisions for deciding whether or not land is highly suitable for cropping (called ‘strategic cropping land’ or ‘SCL’); and (c) establishes— (i) protection areas and the management area for SCL and potential SCL; and (ii) principles to protect land that is SCL or potentialSCL and to manage the impacts of development on it. (2) Management of the impacts on land that is SCL or potential SCL is achieved by: (a) an assessment under this Act for development under particular other Acts; and (b) imposing conditions on the development.The Act provides for the identification of strategic cropping land and for the development on strategic cropping land or potential strategic cropping land.
