Native Vegetation Act 2003

The Native Vegetation Act 2003 was repealed on 25 August 2017 and current legislation governing the clearing of native vegetation is the Local Land Services Act 2013 and the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.

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, please contact Local Land Services.
