Protected Vegetation (Natural Assets Local Law 2003) — Council Vegetation

Brisbane City Council’s Natural Assets Local Law 2003 helps to protect our city’s natural assets, including bushland areas, wetlands, waterway corridors and trees. The Council Vegetation (CV) category protects Council vegetation including vegetation on any land or premises that is owned, controlled or occupied by Council. Protected vegetation under this category includes street trees on footpaths/road reserves and trees in parks. The law is in place to protect the city’s natural vegetation and delivers a balance between protecting the city’s environment and people, property and lifestyle.

Please note that this mapping does not include all protected vegetation, it only includes the Council Vegetation category as mapped under the Natural Assets Local Law 2003. Vegetation that has been recently protected (last 6 weeks), vegetation protected by a condition of a development approval, heritage protected vegetation or vegetation protected by covenant on title is not included in this mapping.

To find out if your property has protected vegetation, including vegetation protected by the Natural Assets Local Law 2003, you can use the Protected Vegetation Online Enquiry Tool to obtain a property report. Further information about Protected Vegetation and the Natural Assets Local Law 2003, including how to apply for a permit, can be found by visiting the Brisbane City Council website and searching 'protected vegetation' or by phoning Council’s Contact Centre on (07) 3403 8888.

The Go to button on the first resource will open our Open Spatial Data website that provides many features for viewing, interacting with, and downloading data. The Go to button on the second resource will open the ArcGIS REST Services Directory website and display the spatial metadata for the dataset. Most of our spatial datasets have four more resources. The four resources are labelled: CSV, GeoJSON, SHP, and KML, and all four have a Download button. Clicking the Download button on the CSV resource will download the attribute data in a table. Clicking the Download button on the GeoJSON, SHP or KML resource will download the data in a spatial file.
