Local Land Services is committed to engaging local communities, industry and land manager groups.
Local Land Services Boards are accountable for how the organisation engages with its communities and stakeholders.
From staff in the field working at an operational level through to developing the strategic direction of the organisation, we place great importance on working with you.
We encourage collaboration and shared responsibility by involving communities, industries and non-government organisations to make the best use of local knowledge and expertise. We offer a range of opportunities for individuals, industry and the community to engage, participate, share ideas and offer feedback on the work we do delivering results for for rural and regional NSW.
Your opinion is important to us. You can take part through:
- workshops and community meetings
- stakeholder meetings and round-tables
- online consultations
- community advisory groups
- local boards.
Customer satisfaction survey
The Local Land Services Act 2013, our mission statement and statewide Strategic Plan 2016 identify customer satisfaction as a long-term indicator of success.
To enable Local Land Services to establish a benchmark to evaluate and improve customer service levels, a customer satisfaction survey was undertaken in October 2015.
An independent research company was engaged to ask 2,300 land managers (200 from each region and 100 public land managers) what they thought of our services through a telephone survey.
Questions covered our overall performance, complaints, communication methods, satisfaction with our services, employee values and behaviour and brand awareness.
The results show how Local Land Services has performed as an entire organisation as well as regionally, with results being used to improve key areas of service.

Greater Sydney LLS is working to involve the Aboriginal community in the region in meaningful and active natural resource management with the assistance of its Aboriginal community support staff.
The Greater Sydney region is home to over 37% of the Aboriginal people of NSW, this being the largest Aboriginal population of any regional area in the State. The GSLLS relies on a triennial Aboriginal NRM Forum to evaluate the progress of its Aboriginal program and to set strategic priorities for the future. An Aboriginal Advisory Committee, with broad community representation, provides on-going input into the Aboriginal program as well as providing advice to the LLS Board.
The GSLLS Aboriginal community support staff also assess on-ground projects to ensure that Aboriginal Heritage is protected in the implementation of the project.
