Vegetation and planning

The planning scheme provides for vegetation protection in some areas and there can also be agreements / covenants on land titles relating to vegetation protection.

Refer to Council's Bushfire Planning  and read managing vegetation on your property for information regarding tree and vegetation management, including the 10/30 and 10/50 rules.

The Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) Native Vegetation - Requirement for a permit to remove native vegetation also provides information on requirement for a permit to remove native vegetation.
