The Horticulture 90-Day Regulatory Mapping and Reform Project is one in a series of projects undertaken by the Western Australian Government that have been designed to enable practical reforms that reduce regulatory burden on Western Australian businesses.

Previous 90-Day Projects completed in 2016 and 2017 have made differences for Western Australian businesses in key sectors of the State’s economy through streamlining approval processes, removing unnecessary and duplicated regulatory requirements, reducing monitoring and reporting requirements (particularly for low risk businesses), enhancing the transparency of government decisions, and providing better guidance materials. Each project also delivers a regulatory map, clearly outlining the processes and pathways a business needs to follow to establish in the sector.

It is now time for horticulture businesses in Western Australia to have their say. As part of the Horticulture 90-Day Project, the Department of Treasury is seeking input from all existing and aspiring horticulture businesses to identify the regulatory areas that are having the biggest impact on this sector.

The project will develop solutions for the issues that horticulture businesses report as being most problematic, so your feedback will help to shape improvements for the whole sector. The Department of Treasury encourages industry members to participate through a survey, telephone interviews and on-site visits to selected areas.

If you would like to take part in a telephone interview or have the project team visit you on your property, please contact the team directly at or phone (08) 6551 4694.
