Interim Guidelines for the Management of Roadside Vegetation Dec 2018

on .

Roadside Consultation PictureThe Native Vegetation Council has developed new interim guidelines for managing native vegetation on roadsides across South Australia.
We are concerned that the guidelines explicitly "aim to provide local councils and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure with greater capacity to clear roadside vegetation", and that they do not adequately protect important native vegetation. Roadside vegetation can be of very high biodiversity value and in some parts of the state it represents the last vestiges of vegetation communities that were historically much more widespread.
