Chapter 5.6 of Bega Valley Development Control Plan 2013 (BVDCP 2013) sets out the approval requirements for the removal of native and non-native vegetation within Bega Valley Shire. The current version of Chapter 5.6 requires amendment to reflect the land management and biodiversity conservation reforms introduced by the NSW Government.
The new biodiversity framework includes several assessment pathways for vegetation clearing under Parts 4 and 5 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, the Local Lands Services Act 2013 and State Environmental Planning Policy (Vegetation in Non-Rural Areas) 2017 (Vegetation SEPP).
The current version of Chapter 5.6 requires a vegetation permit or development application for clearing depending on the location and type of vegetation to be removed. The draft Chapter identifies the assessment criteria, exemptions and approval pathways for the clearing of native and non-native vegetation on specific land use zones under the Bega Valley Local Environmental Plan 2013 (BVLEP 2013).
