Common Reasons for Planning Permits - Vegetation Removal

  • If the property is over 4,000 sqm and the vegetation is native. 
  • To remove non-native species of vegetation if the property is within a Heritage Overlay or Environmental Significance Overlay.
  • There are Planning Permit conditions or other restrictions or agreements applying to the property
  • The property is outside of a Bushfire Management Overlay and you do not have exemptions to create or maintain defendable space in areas affected by a Bushfire Management Overlay.
    See: Vegetation management for bushfire protection.

    Note: Native vegetation is not just trees and includes native grasses, areas of bush or scrub, wetlands and rushes or sedges.
