Roadside Vegetation Management Plan
Since the introduction of the Native Vegetation Act 1991, local councils have been required to manage vegetation on roadsides. Management of this can occur by either applying guidelines issued by the Native Vegetation Council (NVC), or by developing a Roadside Vegetation Management Plan (RVMP) approved by the NVC.
We have adopted RVMP (2010) that is currently being reviewed.
There are a number of ways we are managing native vegetation in our area including:
- The update and development of a Roadside Vegetation Management Plan (RVMP),
- Maintaining and management of our Council Roadside Marker Scheme (RMS), and,
- The protection and improvement of remnant native vegetation in our parks and gardens.
