Biodiversity Certification

On 24 December 2010, the Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, signed an Order issuing biodiversity certification for the Wagga Wagga Local Environmental Plan. The biocertification remains effective for ten years.

The area of biodiversity certification includes all inner urban and Urban Release Areas, including the city centre and its suburban environs, the Lloyd Urban Release Area and the Urban Release Areas of Estella/Boorooma and Bomen to the north of the city centre.

From an environmental protection perspective, the effect of the biocertification is that it will provide exceptional conservation benefits for now and the future for all high conservation value vegetation and will connect that vegetation within a regional biodiversity corridor.

From a Planning and Development perspective, the effect will be to provide greater potential development certainty and cost and therefore processing time savings in the urban areas it covers. Biodiversity Certification removes the need for development applications within the identified areas to address biodiversity issues.

Biocertification does not apply on land to which the provisions of the Native Vegetation Act apply; in relation to Aboriginal heritage and; where Salinity and other Natural Resource management assessments are required.
