The Permit Application for Native Vegetation Removal is to be used when seeking approval to clear native vegetation on private land, and the removal is not associated with development. See Part C of the Urban Forest Technical Manual
for further information.
This form should not be used for applications involving vegetation that: is or forms part of a heritage item; or that is or forms part of an Aboriginal object; or that is within an Aboriginal place of heritage significance. In these instances lodge a Heritage Notification Form
and seek Council's endorsement that the works are considered minor and would not adversely affect the heritage significance of the item or property. If Council's endorsement is not given, you will be required to lodge a Development Application in accordance with Clause 5.10(3) of the Newcastle Local Environmental Plan 2012
Please ensure all information is clearly legible and all documents/payments are received by Council on lodgement, otherwise the application cannot be processed or accepted.
