Changes to 10/50 vegetation clearing

Published Date: 30 Sep 2014

Summary

Changes have been announced to the way the 10/50 vegetation clearing rule is applied in some areas.

The 10/50 vegetation clearing rule was introduced following the devastating 2013 bush fires in which more than 200 properties were destroyed.

The rule allows people in a designated 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Entitlement Area to:

Clear trees on their property within 10 metres of a home, without seeking approval; and
Clear underlying vegetation such as shrubs (but not trees) on their property within 50 metres of a home, without seeking approval.

Changes have been announced to the way the entitlement area applies in some areas, particularly around areas of bushland which pose a lower risk of bush fire. Read more about the changes in our media release.

You can now find out if your property is in a 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Entitlement Area using our online tool. You should check the tool immediately prior to attempting to remove any vegetation, as the entitlement area may have changed.
