If you propose to remove native trees, shrubs or ground-layer plants from land affected by

Some activities are exempt from the need for a planning permit, however, you are encouraged to contact Council’s Statutory Planning Unit for advice before commencing works. 

If you need to apply for a planning permit, your application should include a completed ‘Native Vegetation Removal – Permit Applicant’s Guide’
