High Environmental Value for Central West Orana Regional Growth Planning area - detailed

This polygon shape file is a 1:25,000 – 1: 50 000 environmental dataset combining 14 input data sources. These are outlined in the lineage statement. The input data sets identify agreed HEV criteria for the purposes of regional strategic planning and other environmental assessment projects that require identification of significant biodiversity values. This project was undertaken by Planning Services Unit, OEH with input from all the Planning teams in Regional Operations, OEH. The Central West Orana High Environmental Values dataset covers the Central West Orana Regional Growth Planning area. There is a data gap in the mapping between the Central West and the Central Tablelands CMA boundaries due to a portion of the statewide coverage of vegetation mapping (STVM) products not being complete.

Purpose The purpose of the project was to identify environmental criteria and values across the landscape that reflect current statutory and planning policy for the protection of the environment in planning matters. This allow the interrogation of the single dataset to identify various environmental criteria/values for assessment on a landscape basis or in some cases, at the local planning stage. The project aimed to identify the following environmental criteria;• Areas protected for conservation• Native vegetation of high conservation value• Threatened species and populations• Wetlands, rivers, estuaries and coastal feature of high environmental value• Areas of geological significance
