This record is now superseded. The current record for ‘Transitional – Excluded Land' can be viewed here.

The Excluded Land layer is a component of the Native Vegetation Regulatory Map (NVR Map). NVR Map was prepared by Department of Planning Industry and Environment (DPIE) under Part 5A of the Local Land Services Act 2013 (LLS Act) and supporting Local Land Services Regulation 2014.

Section 60A of the Local Land Service Act 2013 (LLS Act) identifies land where the regulatory framework for native vegetation clearing in rural areas does not apply. This land is mapped as Excluded Land on the Native Vegetation Regulation Map (NVR Map).

The 2019 Annual Review of the transitional NVR map was published on 22 November 2019. Please read below for details about changes occurring as a result of the 2019 Annual Review. The latest version of the map can be viewed online using the NVR Map Viewer
