Provisions of the Hunters Hill Local Environmental Plan 2012 apply to the management or maintenance of existing trees and vegetation. Clause 5.9 requires that development consent or a permit is obtained from Hunter’s Hill Council before altering any “Prescribed Vegetation”.
Council’s list of “Prescribed Vegetation” is provided under clause 2.3.3 of its Consolidated Development Control Plan 2013. This clause is shown below.
The form to use for applications that only involve the pruning or removal of “Prescribed Vegetation” is provided via the below link and is called the Tree and Vegetation Management – Application Form. If you wish to prune or remove “Prescribed Vegetation” in conjunction with building works please use the "Standard Development Application" form.
