About the brochure
A conservation covenant is a voluntary agreement between a landowner and an authorised body to help the landowner protect and manage the environment on their property. It is usually registered on the title of the land and can apply to all or part of a property. Although there are exceptions, it is usually permanent. The terms of the agreement are negotiated between the landowner and the covenant provider and may only be changed with the agreement of both parties.
