Interactive Guide for Native Vegetation

The Interactive Guide for Native Vegetation is an online tool that helps you decide if and how you need to apply to clear native vegetation.

Native vegetation in most parts of South Australia is protected by the Native Vegetation Act 1991. If you want to clear native vegetation for any reason, you need to:

  • check whether your proposed clearance is listed in the Native Vegetation Regulations 2017 (check our guide to the regulations); if it is, clearance is permitted but conditions usually apply
  • check whether the native vegetation you are proposing to clear is protected under the Native Vegetation Act 1991.

The interactive guide will lead you to the correct information for your situation, and describe next steps.
