The State Environmental Planning Policy (Vegetation in Non-Rural Areas) 2017 (Vegetation SEPP) was one of a suite of Land Management and Biodiversity Conservation (LMBC) reforms that commenced in New South Wales on 25 August 2017. The Vegetation SEPP (the SEPP) works together with the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 and the Local Land Services Amendment Act 2016 to create a framework for the regulation of clearing of native vegetation in NSW.

The SEPP will ensure the biodiversity offset scheme (established under the Land Management and Biodiversity reforms) will apply to all clearing of native vegetation that exceeds the offset thresholds in urban areas and environmental conservation zones that does not require development consent.

Lineage

Data is created by extracting the Local Government Areas to which the policy applies (data source: Local Government Area layer from the Digital Cadastre Database, Custodian: Spatial Services) combined with the zones to which the policy applies for rest of the State (data source: Environmental Planning Instrument Zoning data, Custodian: Department of Planning & Environment) by excluding the land to which the policy does not apply (Data Source: State Forests & Estate data sets, Custodian: Department of Planning & Environment)

Explanation

Data has slivers and gaps in places where the input data sets do not perfectly align. This not unexpected given the input data comes from different agencies and is based on different reference data. Several of such slivers and gaps have been corrected as part of the QA process, however, it is not 100% complete. Where possible, DPE plans to correct the misalignment at the source in future releases.
