We report on landcover change on rural regulated land each year. Management of native vegetation is determined by land categorisation. Regulated land is classified as ‘Category 2 – regulated land’ under Part 5A of the Local Land Services Act 2013. Land categories set out the pathways available for landholders of regulated land to obtain authorisation to clear and manage native vegetation.
In 2020, about 47,200 hectares of non woody vegetation and 21,100 hectares of woody vegetation was lost on rural regulated land.
See our 2020 landcover change reporting webpage for more information.
