Approval may be required from Council for the removal of native vegetation from land to which the SEPP (Vegetation in Non-Rural Areas) 2017 applies.
The Vegetation Removal Fact Sheet can assist you in determining if approval is required.
Approval can be obtained via the lodgement of a tree permit application.
For additional information in relation to supplementary information required to be submitted with development applications and tree permit applications for vegetation removal, please refer to Chapter E1 – Biodiversity of Coffs Harbour Development Control Plan.
Note: where the removal of native vegetation is associated with development which also requires approval from Council it is recommended that one development application is lodged simultaneously for both purposes.
Compensatory planting may be required as part of your application to remove vegetation. Information on suggested species can be found in the Species Selection Guide.
