Correct a vegetation map

If, after viewing the regulated vegetation management map for your property, you think there is an error, you can apply to amend the map through a property map of assessable vegetation (PMAV).

The regulated vegetation management map is updated monthly to reflect any new property maps of assessable vegetation.

Property maps of assessable vegetation (PMAVs)

A PMAV is a property-scale map that shows the boundaries of vegetation categories on the property.

A PMAV is made through agreement between you and the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy. Once the PMAV is certified, it replaces the regulated vegetation management map for determining the location and extent of the areas of regulated vegetation.

We may also place a PMAV over an area of land for other reasons, for example to allow an area to regenerate when it has been unlawfully cleared or to protect an offset area until it has reached remnant status.

How to apply

Your application must include:

Your application must also contain a map showing the proposed vegetation boundaries and categories as well as information to demonstrate that the proposed boundaries are accurate. The application form provides details of requirements.

What happens next?

Once we receive your application, we will first conduct a ‘desktop analysis’ using the information you supplied in your application, imagery and any other relevant data available to us. If we need extra information, we will contact you and arrange a site inspection.

After we have considered all available information, we will send you a draft PMAV or certified PMAV, depending on whether all of the changes requested in your application have been made. If proposed changes have not been made, we will provide you with information detailing the reasons behind our decision and offer you the opportunity to supply additional information.

If an applicant is not satisfied with a decision that has been made by the department, they can apply for an internal review (PDF, 70KB).
