New Tree Protection Local Law


In July 2019, the City of Darebin introduced a Tree Protection Local Law to enhance and protect the trees within the City of Darebin, whereby tree removal and pruning on private property will be regulated.

Similar to the City of Boroondara who have implemented a similar tree protection local law, the City of Darebin have bypassed a Planning Scheme Amendment process in adopting a local law approach.

Therefore, properties without a tree or vegetation overlay such as a Vegetation Protection Overlay may still be subject to Council approval to remove or prune trees via this new local law.
