Vegetation surveys for council planning permission

Vegetation Surveys for Council Permits

A vegetation survey/landscape plan is often required by local councils as part of planning permissions and needs to be prepared by a suitably qualified person. Usually the plan will need to incorporate some or all of the following:

  • A plan showing existing vegetation.
  • All trees identified, noting their Latin names, common names, trunk diameter and canopy size.
  • Whether vegetation will be removed or retained.
  • The type of hard surfacing, mulch, and other materials.
  • Tree-protection notes.

The vegetation survey/landscape plan will show proposed new planting, often conforming to the council’s policy regarding use of natives and indigenous plants.

We have had many years of experience in preparing vegetation surveys for the Mornington Peninsula Shire and understand exactly what they require.
