Transitional - Excluded Land

The Transitional - 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 2021 annual review of the transitional NVR map was published on 26 March 2021. Please read below for details of land types included in the Transitional - Excluded Land layer and changes occurring as a result of the 2021 Annual Review. The latest version of the map can be viewed online using the NVR Map Viewer

Excluded land listed under Section 60A of the LLS Act includes:

  • Urban areas under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Vegetation in Non-Rural Areas) 2017, including 33 local government areas and 22 listed local environmental plan zones under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

  • State forestry land.
  • Crown Reserves; land dedicated or reserved under the Crown Lands Act 1989
  • Interim Heritage order or listing on the State Heritage Register under the Heritage Act 1977
