10/50 Code

Thursday 3 September 2015

The 10/50 code allows landowners to remove trees within 50 metres and vegetation within 10 metres of homes in without Council or Fire Service oversight, but provisions were misused. In Parliament I raised community concern about bush fire clearing rules that allow trees to be cut down simply for views and property value, including protected trees and animal habitats. Information about the community campaign is HERE. My speech is HERE
