High Environmental Values for the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Regional Plan Area

This polygon shape file is a 1:25,000 – 1: 50 000 environmental dataset combining 5 criteria and a larger number of sub-criteria 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 Biodiversity Conservation and Science (DPIE, EES). The Illawarra High Environmental Values dataset covers the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Regional Plan 2041 area.

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 allows 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. This dataset has been published as 'High Environmental Values for the Illawarra-Shoalhaven' in the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Regional Plan 2041.
