Lake Macquarie City Council Tree Removal Application Forms

 

Lake Macquarie City Council Tree Removal requires residential property owners to comply with certain rules and regulations.   If your property is within the Lake Macquarie City Council,  Tree Removal guidelines are stated below.

Development consent is not required to ring bark, cut down, top, lop, remove, injure, wilfully destroy or clear a tree or native vegetation, if:

  1. The tree or native vegetation is within five metres of the outermost projection of a lawfully used building (that is not exempt or complying development) and is on the same allotment as the building.
  2. The tree or native vegetation is within one metre of a sealed driveway to a lawfully used building (that is not exempt or complying development) and is on the same allotment as the building.
  3. The tree or native vegetation is within five metres of the outermost projection of a lawfully used building (that is not exempt or complying development) on an adjoining allotment as the building and owners of both properties reach a written agreement that is submitted to Council prior to the removal.

These guidelines are for residential properties only.   If you require more information please click here for the full Lake Macquarie Tree Preservation Order or contact Lake Macquarie Council.
