Did you know a new State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP), seeking to protect koala habitat, came into effect on 1 March 2020. The Policy (SEPP Koala Habitat Protection 2019) repeals and replaces State Environmental Planning Policy No 44 — Koala Habitat Protection.
The Policy is supported by a (draft) Koala Habitat Protection Guideline, which was on exhibition between 2 March 2020 and 6 April 2020. The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is now considering the feedback to finalise the Guideline.
