Necessary environmental clearing draft code

We welcome feedback on the draft revised accepted development vegetation clearing code for Necessary environmental clearing. It has been reviewed as part of a broader review of self-assessable activities landholders can undertake using accepted development vegetation clearing codes to ensure they are based on the best available science. The review process also ensures all codes are consistent with the aims of Queensland’s vegetation management laws.

This consultation draft brings together the outcomes of independent technical reviews of this code for low-risk clearing activities, and we encourage anyone with feedback to have a say.

The proposed changes to the code are based on scientific input from the Queensland Herbarium. This advice has also been peer reviewed by the CSIRO.

The purpose of this code is to regulate the clearing of native vegetation for land restoration, flood mitigation and contaminant removal.
