This data has now been superseded, please go to https://datasets.seed.nsw.gov.au/dataset/nvr-map-excluded-land-transitional2022 for the most current NVR Data


The transitional NVR map - land excluded from the LLS Act layer is a component of the transitional NVR map. The transitional NVR map was prepared by Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) 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 Land Excluded from the LLS Act on the transitional 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 NVR map - land excluded from the LLS Act layer and changes occurring as a result of the 2021 Annual Review. The latest version of the map can be viewed online using the transitional NVR Map Viewer

Land excluded from the LLS Act 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.
  • National Park estate and other conservation areas
  • 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

Changes to the transitional NVR map - land excluded from the LLS Act layer arising from the 2021 Annual Review include:

  • Environmental Planning Instrument (EPI) land zoning – updates to land excluded from the LLS Act as a result of changes to land zoning for some local government areas.
