Draft guideline for the determination of wetland buffer requirements

The main purpose of the guideline is to provide a methodology to assist identification of an appropriate wetland buffer.

This guideline has been developed to assist landowners, developers, planners and architects to identify an appropriate buffer between wetlands and land uses that will enhance or maintain the significant attributes and values of the wetland.

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.
