You will need this permit if you intend to interfere with controlled vegetation in a Priority Development Area.
Priority Development Areas (PDAs) are parcels of land within Queensland identified for development to deliver significant benefits to the community.
In a PDA, clearing vegetation (i.e. removal of the vegetation) may be regulated by the development scheme. If this is the case, a PDA development application is required to be lodged, assessed and approved prior to clearing the vegetation.
In certain Brisbane PDAs, interfering with controlled vegetation is managed by the agency.
In a PDA other than a Brisbane PDA, interfering with vegetation may be managed by the local government under a local law.
