NSW is transitioning to a new way of managing and assessment proposals to clear native vegetation.  The aim of the reforms is to enable effective agricultural land management and facilitate ecologically sustainable development outcomes. It is a risk based approach which encourages landholders to avoid and minimise any potential impacts on biodiversity.  Impacts that cannot be avoided are required to be offset.
