Land Clearing Guidelines 2010 (pdf 1Mb)
When assessing the suitability of an area for development it is important to know whether the soil types will be suitable for the proposed use, whether adequate water resources are available and whether there are any threatened or endangered wildlife present.
The Land Clearing Guidelines are designed to assist landholders and the consent authority decide which areas are suited to development and those that should be left in their natural state to help protect the environment and maintain biodiversity. The Land Clearing Guidelines apply to all native vegetation clearing in the Northern Territory. Vegetation management fact sheets are available below which explain the management of regrowth, stream orders, threatened species and selective clearing.
