Goulburn Broken Native Vegetation Plan

The Goulburn Broken Native Vegetation Plan was finalised in 2003 following an extensive process of development with key stakeholders.
By Administrator

It bundled together the Native Vegetation Management Strategy 2000 as Volume 1 and the Regional Guidelines for Native Vegetation Retention Controls in the Goulburn Broken Catchment as Volume 2 of the Native Vegetation Plan.  This occurred in 2003 following State directive and in light of the release of Victoria's Native Vegetation Management - A Framework for Action in 2002.
This process, and the essence of the changes made to the Plan, is detailed in the Addendum. The Plan translated the policy of the State Framework to the specific circumstances of the catchment through Volume 2 - Regional Guidelines for Native Vegetation Retention Controls in the Goulburn Broken Catchment.

The Plan was a landmark for Victoria and the first attempt to deal with the complex issues of native vegetation management in such an integrated manner. By taking a landscape perspective the Strategy sets out a framework for the community to tackle native vegetation management issues in a coordinated manner, maximising the benefits of investment and effort.

The Goulburn Broken Native Vegetation Plan is made up of several components. Click on a title in the relevant section below:

Volume 2: Native Vegetation Retention Controls - Regional Guidelines

This addendum provides additional information to Appendix 4, Table 4 in Volume 2 of the Goulburn Broken Native Vegetation Plan 2003 (Regional Guidelines for Native Vegetation Retention Controls), in response to changes to the Victorian Native Vegetation Management Framework. The information provided therein was used in conjunction with the guidelines to determine and provide offsets for -small / slow growing- trees and very large old trees (prior to the updated Victorian government’s native vegetation regulations in December 2013). The ‘native vegetation retention controls – regional guidelines’ are now inactive but remain on this website for historic reference.
