Managing clearing for necessary property infrastructure: a self-assessable vegetation clearing code

This code covers clearing of native vegetation for construction and maintenance of necessary property infrastructure in rural areas, including fences, roads, firebreaks, and dams.

Note: As a result of the new Planning Act 2016, which commenced on 3 July 2017:

  • self-assessable vegetation clearing codes are now known as accepted development vegetation clearing codes, and this document is to be taken as an accepted development vegetation clearing code

  • exemptions are now known as exempt clearing work under Schedule 21 of the Planning Regulation 2017, and any reference to an exemption / exemptions are to be taken as a reference to exempt clearing work.
