Environmental legislation advice – thinning

Since the introduction of the Vegetation Management Act in 1999, legislation has reduced the ability of landholders to manage remnant vegetation on their property.

However, current amendments, including the self – assessable codes for clearing vegetation, have allowed landholders under certain guidelines to thin vegetation returning ecosystems back to its remnant condition. Other vegetation management activities under the self – assessable codes include clearing for environmental purposes, clearing for encroachment of natural grassland ecosystems, clearing for high value agriculture and clearing for pest management activities. CHRRUP Consultancy has extensive experience in providing the right advice on all matters dealing with environmental legislation including the VMA, NCA and EPBC and offers services to aid in ensuring compliance under current legislation.
