Western Australia’s native vegetation – have your say

Published on Thursday, 16 January 2020 at 3:02:30 PM

The WA Government is developing four initiatives to improve the consistency, transparency and quality of information which will enable better management of our State’s native vegetation. They are seeking your feedback from November 2019 to February 2020.

  • A State native vegetation policy: to promote consistency and transparency in the objectives that apply to consideration of native vegetation across all Government processes.
  • Better information: Improved data and mapping systems to track native vegetation extent, condition and approvals.
  • Better regulation: to improve efficiency and effectiveness of regulatory processes, as well as supporting compliance and enforcement activities.
  • A bioregional approach: to explore approaches to setting regionally tailored objectives for native vegetation management.

A native vegetation consultation workshop will be held in Katanning on Wednesday 22 January 2020. People interested in attending the workshop are encouraged to register by visiting  https://dwer.wa.gov.au/consultation/nativeveg

Consultation closes 10 February 2020 and feedback can be provided via on online survey https://consult.dwer.wa.gov.au/native-vegetation/issues-paper/consultation/.
