Landholder Cost of the Prevention of Clearing for Cropping, Walgett NSW (2008)

An independent assessment of the per hectare loss to landholders associated with the prevention of clearing for cropping east of Walgett was required. Three separate approaches were adopted in order to provide a robust per hectare loss estimate – discounted cash flow, comparative property sale and estimates prepared in the published and refereed literature. Analysis was completed by Michael Clarke.
