The Department for Environment and Water is responsible for many areas where environmental regulation may influence a development.
If you are planning a development, you may need to consider regulations surrounding:
- Native vegetation
- Threatened species and ecological communities
- State heritage
- Ground and surface water
- Access and use of Crown land and reserves
Understanding these regulations will help identify any potential constraints to a proposed development, any direct financial implications to allow for, and any extra timeframes that need to be factored in.
