Native Vegetation Removal

Native Vegetation Published Monday, 12th December 2022

In an effort to help reduce concerns around native vegetation removal, South Gippsland Shire Council has created some new resources.

One is a fact sheet that goes through some of the main questions we hear and the other is a simple flow chart that steps you through bushfire protection rules.

In short, vegetation removal is allowed in some circumstances and a planning permit can sometimes be required. If you remove vegetation without a permit when one is required, penalties apply as it is an offence.
