Environmental Compliance

Since the 1970s there has been an explosion of legislation designed to protect the environment. Assessing the environmental impact of a proposed development is a standard part of most application processes, and many approvals contain conditions relating to environmental protection and management.

Common situations where environmental compliance may be an issue include:

  • clearing of native vegetation
  • maintenance or restoration of vegetation as part of licence conditions
  • management of vegetation that is used as biodiversity or carbon offsets
  • activities that impact on threatened species (such as changing flooding regimes)
  • control of declared noxious weeds and/or pest animals

Western Land Planning can conduct an audit of your environmental compliance, and if needed, liaise with the consent authority on your behalf to determine the most appropriate way of ensuring that all licensing requirements are met.  We draw on our experience and our strong working relationships with all levels of government to negotiate solutions to overcome any problems associated with your licences and approvals.

Call us for a chat if you're not sure whether your proposed activities require approval, or your current activities are in accordance with the legislation, your licences and approvals.  We can advise you on the types of approvals necessary for your farm enterprises, and provide an obligation-free quote on a service to meet your needs.
