The fenceline vegetation rule applies
If the 10/50 rule applies to your property you may not need a permit to remove any vegetation for a combined maximum width of four metres either side of a fence between your property and a neighbouring property.
Note that this rule only applies to you if the fence was constructed before 10 September 2009; AND you have the neighbour’s permission before undertaking any works.
Please contact the planning department of your local council for further advice on their land.
Homes built after 10 September 2009 will need a permit to clear vegetation outside of defendable space, no matter where they are located.
This includes houses that are replacements for a home damaged or destroyed by bushfire between 1st January 2009 and 31 March 2009.
Contact your local shire or council for more information.
