The tree protection controls, through Amendment C191, applied a municipal-wide Significant Landscape Overlay (SLO9) to all residential land not currently included in the SLO, on an interim basis.
Amendment C219 replaces the SLO that was originally applied by Amendment C191. The Minister for Planning has now approved Amendment C219, on an interim basis for 12 months. The approved SLO9, and the complete list of permit requirements and exemptions, is available here ( PDF 133.05KB).

Amendment C223 extended the expiry date of the controls for a further 12 months to 30 June 2020 to allow Council to complete Amendment C219 to permanently apply SLO9.
