​​​​​​9.2.11 Native Plant Species  

Where possible, the use of native plants and seeds from indigenous seed sources should be used on all developments and landscape projects/treatments.  This will help to:

  • contribute to national commitments on the conservation of biological diversity by establishing native habitats and reducing the planting and dispersion of non‐native plants
  • support a reduction in the threat posed by the importation of pests and diseases carried on non‐native (and non‐indigenously sourced) plant material
  • compensate for loss of habitat
  • maintain regional identity, landscape character and diversity

Development Management Requirement:

  • The Council will promote the use of native plants and seeds from indigenous seed sources in all landscape projects
