Property vegetation plans
Property vegetation plans (PVPs) approved before the repeal of the Native Vegetation Act remain valid and in force.
No new PVPs can be submitted by a landholder, however an existing PVP may be modified (varied).
For more information on how or why a PVP can be varied, contact Local Land Services.
Self-assessable codes for managing native vegetation
Self-assessable code notifications for managing native vegetation under the Native Vegetation Regulation 2013 remained in force until 24 February 2019. Obligations to manage and maintain set-aside areas continue in perpetuity.
This means that if a landholder has notified the former Office of Environment and Heritage of intended clearing using one of the self-assessable codes before the repeal of the NV Act, they could undertake the clearing up until 24 February 2019. After this date, any further clearing will be deemed illegal.
For more information about these historic notifications, contact Local Land Services.
Information about PVPs approved by Local Land Services under the NV Act are publicly available in the Native Vegetation Act 2003 public register.
