Guidelines for applying the Thinning of Native Vegetation Ministerial Order (thinning self-assessable code)
This guide is for NSW landholders who are considering thinning native vegetation on their property. Together with the Thinning of Native Vegetation Ministerial Order, this guide forms a self-assessable code of practice for thinning native vegetation (thinning self-assessable code).

The thinning self-
assessable code has been created to allow landholders to undertake thinning without requiring a
Property Vegetation Plan (PVP).
If you comply with the provisions of the thinning self-assessable code, a PVP is not required; however, in accordance with the thinning self-assessable code, you are required to notify the Local Land Services (LLS) of your intention to clear at least 14 days before that clearing is carried out.
