Areas where the transitional map applies
A map of Vulnerable and Sensitive Regulated Land was published in 2017, which legally restricts land clearing in those areas. This is known as the transitional Native Vegetation Regulatory map. A limited range of allowable activities are permitted in these mapped areas. This remains in place statewide. You can request a free review of the transitional Native Vegetation Regulatory map at any time.
Whether or not the draft Native Vegetation Regulatory map is published in your area, category 1 and category 2 land remain defined by the criteria in the legislation.
If you live outside of the 11 local government areas where the draft map has been published and would like to be notified when the draft map becomes available in your area, send us an enquiry. Once a map is published in an area, you can request a free map review at any time. A draft Native Vegetation Regulatory map does not create any new regulatory requirements or place additional requirements on landholders.
If your property straddles a local government area boundary, contact our Map Review Team, who can assist you with a map for your property.
The Local Land Services website contains guidance material and resources.
