Trees-Permit Application for Tree Removal

The Permit Application for Tree Removal is to be used for trees and shrubs located on private land that are not part of a native vegetation community.  See Part A and C of the   Urban Forest Technical Manual for further information.

This form should not be used for applications involving trees and shrubs that: are or form part of a heritage item; or place within a heritage conservation area; or that are or form part of an Aboriginal object; or that are within an Aboriginal place of heritage significance.  In these instances lodge a  Heritage Notification Form and seek Council's endorsement that the works are considered minor and would not adversely affect the heritage significance of the item, area or property.  If Council's endorsement is not given, you will be required to lodge a Development Application in accordance with Clause 5.10(3) of the  Newcastle Local Environmental Plan 2012.

Please ensure all information is clearly legible and all documents/payments are received by Council on lodgement, otherwise the application cannot be processed or accepted.
