The Queensland Government has created a draft self-assessable code for Queensland landholders to manage low risk vegetation clearing without the need for formal approval. The draft code has been created with the intent to enable landholders to continue to undertake thinning activities in a way that protects Queensland’s regional ecosystems. The newly created draft thinning code combines previous self-assessable codes relating to the management of thickened vegetation into a single state-wide code.
The Queensland Government is seeking comment on the draft code from both landholders and stakeholders, submissions close at 5pm on 2 August. If you would like to submit your feedback, you can download and review the draft self-assessable code for managing thickened vegetation and answer the consultation questionnaire via the links below.
