The Landscape Guidelines provide advice to residents and developers looking to remove or replace vegetation, additionally the Guidelines support Bayside’s Planning Scheme by providing advice to residents living within an area zoned as having a Vegetation Protection Overlay or a Significant Landscape Overlay .
To strengthen community use and understanding of the Landscape Guidelines, Council sought feedback from:
- Residents that live within an area covered by a Vegetation Protection Overlay or a Significant Landscape Overlay.
- Developers, Landscape Architects, Arborists or consultants that work in the Bayside municipality and may need to remove vegetation as part of their work.
- Environmentalists, or those with an interest in working with Council to protect Bayside's vegetation.
- Current and previous applicants that are required to submit a Landscape Plan as part of their permit application.
At the June 2016 Council Meeting, Council adopted the Landscape Guidelines with a number of changes - these changes are listed here
