What do I need to do before I clear native vegetation?

Certain types of clearing require approval from your local Local Land Services (LLS). This includes clearing remnant native vegetation or protected regrowth.

A LLS can only approve clearing such vegetation if doing so does not negatively impact on the environment.

Property vegetation plans

Your local LLS can help you to develop a property vegetation plan (PVP). This is an agreement between a landholder and the local LLS.

Because PVPs apply to the land and not the landholder, they are publicly registered.

The register will show if your land already has a PVP
