Review of accepted development vegetation clearing codes
Note: As a result of the new Planning Act 2016, which commenced on 3 July 2017, there are a number of changes to the vegetation management framework. Changes include:
- self-assessable vegetation clearing codes are now known as accepted development vegetation clearing codes
- exemptions are now known as exempt clearing work.
The Minister for Natural Resources and Mines commissioned an independent technical review of accepted development vegetation clearing codes to ensure they are achieving the intended objective and to recommend improvements.
The outcomes of the review (PDF, 1.6MB), conducted by Cardno, were presented to government and stakeholders.
The accepted development vegetation clearing codes will continue to be available to manage low-risk clearing activities and they will be amended to align with the latest scientific information.
Draft revisions of the existing codes are currently being developed and will be released for public comment in stages through to 2017.
