The Department is asking all decision makers to provide notification of the determination of every development or activity to which the Biodiversity Offsets Scheme applies.
Decision makers include local councils, Part 5 authorities and the Native Vegetation Panel.
The notification process is:
- the decision maker downloads and fills in the form Biodiversity Offsets Scheme – Notification of Determination (DOCX 89KB)
- the decision maker emails the completed form and attachments, including a copy of the determination and any conditions of approval, to firstname.lastname@example.org determination outcomes will be recorded in the Biodiversity Offset and Agreement Management System.
This is an interim process. The Department intends to further develop the Biodiversity Offset and Agreement Management System and supporting processes to enable direct capture of this information.
