The new legislation details what is required to be consider when someone is seeking the removal of a single tree through to areas of native vegetation.
Given the recent changes in relation to the removal of trees and the clearing of native vegetation, please contact Council’s Environment and Planning Department on (02)4830 1000 in the first instance to identify whether you require a Permit to remove a Tree or clear native vegetation.
Where approval is requires the attached form is to be completed and returned to Council and approval granted.
If you are removing trees on rural zoned land, you must seek approval through Local Land Services (LLS) and can be contacted at the Goulburn Office on 4824 1900.
