The main purpose of the guideline is to provide a methodology to assist identification of an appropriate wetland buffer.
It should be used where a change in land use or development is proposed in the immediate vicinity of a wetland (ie within a lot containing a wetland or adjacent to a wetland) where the future use or development is likely to conflict with the established wetland management objective. This may include urban, some public purposes, intensive rural, commercial or industrial uses and development.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
