10/50 Vegetation Clearing

The 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Scheme offers residents an additional way to ensure their property is bushfire prepared.

The scheme allows people in a designated area to:

  • Clear trees on their property within 10 metres of a home, without seeking approval; and
  • Clear underlying vegetation such as shrubs (but not trees) on their property within 50 metres of a home, without seeking approval.
