Protected Vegetation (Natural Assets Local Law 2003) — Waterway and Wetland 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. All vegetation in wetlands and waterways, as mapped by Brisbane City Council, is protected vegetation. These important areas provide habitat for a unique diversity of flora and fauna. Waterways and wetlands in Brisbane do not always contain permanent water, they can be natural or man-made and may have environments that range from freshwater to salt water. They help capture, store and convey water across the city and also provide important linkages between habitat areas for native wildlife and help maintain water quality.

This mapping does not include all protected vegetation, it only includes the Waterway and Wetland 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 a 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.

This dataset uses Brisbane City Council's Open Spatial Data website to provide extra features for viewing and downloading the data. The first two resources in this dataset are labelled HTML and they each have a Go to button. Clicking a Go to button will open a web page in a new tab. 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.
