I fit into the 'other' category
If your land does not fall into the category of residential, farmland, commercial or industrial, you may find it fits the category of either Government Land or Public Benefit land.
Government land will be exempt from the FESL. Land will generally be classified as Government land if it is:
- Land owned by a NSW Government agency, including a State owned corporation, except:
- where the land is leased or licenced to any other person for more than a nominal rent; or
- where the land is owned by a State owned corporation operating in the energy sector.
- Land owned by the Crown and subject to the Housing Act 2001 or the Aboriginal Housing Act 1998.
- Land owned by a local government, except where that land is leased or licenced to any other person for more than a nominal rent.
- Land owned by the Crown in right of the Commonwealth.
- Land in the unincorporated area of the Western Division.
Public Benefit Land
Land is classified as Public Benefit Land if it is not used for a profit-making purpose and if its dominant use is for a purpose referred to in the Definition of Public Benefit Land.
Note: Land may be used for a profit-making purpose even if no profit is made.
