The Native Vegetation Marker System (NVMS) has been designed to identify sites of conservation significance, which are protected by legislation due to remnant native vegetation.
Council has adopted the NVMS to assist in management of roadside native vegetation. The system is voluntary, and uses a standard sign for marking sites, assisting Council and other agencies to protect remnant native vegetation, and to comply with the requirements of Commonwealth and State legislation during roadworks and other public utility work nearby.
The NVMS supports best practice management for roadside native vegetation. The marking system could be readily extended for identifying other landscape, historic and cultural features if and when required by Council.
