Regulatory map review

The Native Vegetation Regulatory (NVR) Map underpins the new land management framework.

The NVR Map shows rural land where clearing of native vegetation can occur without approval, rural land where clearing can only be carried out in accordance with the Local Land Services Act 2013 (LLS Act) and excluded land where the LLS Act does not apply.

Landholders can apply for a Category Explanation Report for nominated areas of their land which explains the basis for the inclusion of land in certain categories on the NVR map, a list of layers that contributed to categorisation of their land and a detailed map of the land identifying contributing layers.

Landholders who consider that the NVR map incorrectly categorises their land can also apply for a review of the NVR Map.

A Map Review allows landholders to provide additional information to enable further assessment of the categorisation of their land.
