Reforms under way

Review of Native Vegetation Regulations 2003

A review of the Native Vegetation Regulations commenced in October 2014 as part of a broader native vegetation management reform programme.

Our aim is to simplify the clearance process. We are streamlining application, assessment and approval processes to reduce the regulatory burden wherever possible and appropriate.

Changes to Significant Environmental Benefit (SEB) Offsetting

We are reforming the way that offsetting takes place in South Australia.
The aims of the reforms are to:
  • improve the consistency in how SEB offsets are determined
  • provide greater opportunities and flexibility for proponent in providing an SEB offset
  • improve the environmental outcomes achieved through SEB offsetting
  • ensure that South Australia's native vegetation offsetting approach is consistent with national and international standards.
