Native Vegetation Clearance

Native vegetation in South Australia (except parts of metropolitan Adelaide) is protected. You may need to apply to clear native vegetation. This is a separate process to the Development Act approval process.

See maps to find out where the protection under the Native Vegetation Act applies. Contact your local Natural Resources Centre if you need general information.

Septic Tank Applications

The safe disposal of sewage and household wastewater is necessary to safeguard the health of the community and protect the environment.

Not all sites have characteristics suitable for conventional subsurface effluent disposal; therefore, it is very important to carry out the necessary investigations to determine the suitability of the site and design the system accordingly.

NOTE: It is important that the requirements of the septic tank system be considered during the planning stage of any development.

Approval must be obtained from the relevant authority before proceeding with the installation of a septic tank system.

For more information in regards to the Application process for Septic & Sewer Services, please contact the Council office on 08 86272 026.
