Apiculture

In 2014 the Secretary to DEPI (now called Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning) issued a directive that all beekeeping be administered in accordance with the 2013 policy and operating procedure. The policy and operating procedure aim to encourage apiculture on public land. The directive overrides any existing provision in the management plan that is inconsistent with the new policy and procedure including any cap on bee site capacity.
