Draft Development Control Plan Chapter “XX”, in respect of Tree and Vegetation Management has been prepared for land within the Central Coast Local Government Area

In accordance with the Resolution of Council on 8 October, 2018, Council has prepared a Draft Tree and Vegetation Management Chapter for public exhibition which is designed to be inserted into and replace the relevant Chapters within both the Wyong Development Control Plan 2013 (Chapter 3.6) and the Gosford Development Control Plan 2013 (Chapter 6.6). Draft Chapter “XX” details when tree and vegetation management works require a Permit from Council, and where Exemptions from Permits are available.

Council is interested in your feedback as to whether these proposed exemptions will adequately cater for normal gardening practices, whilst maintaining "reasonable requirements" for tree preservation and maintaining the amenity of our suburbs.

The Chapter will apply generally to Central Coast urban areas and environmentally zoned lands, or “Non-Rural zones”, as identified within the Chapter.

This Draft Development Control Plan will be exhibited between 8 November 2018 and 28 January 2019 at:

  • Wyong Office: 2 Hely Street, Wyong;
  • Gosford Office: 49 Mann Street, Gosford;
  • Online version

Submissions should be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer and will be accepted until 5.00pm on Monday 28 January 2019 by:

Your attention is drawn to the provisions of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 which allows for possible access to certain public and personal documentation.
