EDO Workshop - 14 July 2018
A Workshop on Bushland and Tree removal in the Blue Mountains
Are you alarmed by the significant loss of trees particularly in the Lower Blue Mountains?
Or maybe extensive bulldozing for a new development is occurring near you.

There have been a number of changes in the laws about land clearing, bushland removal and the cutting down of trees. These may apply differently in different areas.
The Environmental Defenders Office will be running a workshop for the Society to inform us about the legislation and processes that now exist to protect bushland here in the Blue Mountains.
Date: Saturday 14 July 2018
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Venue: Lawson Mechanics Institute
The workshop is free, but we would appreciate attendees registering their interest at EventBrite.
The aim of the workshop will be to let each of us know what to do when either:
- Clearing is taking place and you suspect that it is not legal, or
- A development application is open for public comment and bushland removal is involved.
You will learn:
- Which government agency can or should be taking action (who has responsibility and can help) and how the process works
- What laws and regulations exist to protect bushland, or can be used to argue a case or to push for action.
