The Department for Environment and Water is responsible for many areas where environmental regulation may influence a development.

If you are planning a development, you may need to consider regulations surrounding:

  • Native vegetation
  • Threatened species and ecological communities
  • State heritage
  • Ground and surface water
  • Coast
  • Marine
  • Access and use of Crown land and reserves

Understanding these regulations will help identify any potential constraints to a proposed development, any direct financial implications to allow for, and any extra timeframes that need to be factored in.
