WALGA produces a number of resources which are aimed at assisting Local Governments find this balance whilst managing native vegetation in their area. The following resources are available:

Road Reserve Asset Management Plan (RRAMP)

This resource helps Local Governments to balance native vegetation management within road reserves with road infrastructure upgrade and maintenance.

 

Native Vegetation Status Statistics

To identify the extent of native vegetation by vegetation type remaining within Local Government, two sets of statistics are prepared annually by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. To access the datasets, visit www.data.wa.gov.au and search for:
  • DBCA Statewide Vegetation Statistics (Based on Beard Vegetation mapping), and
  • DBCA South West Vegetation Complex Statistics.
These statistics and varied vegetation mapping data are also available via LGmap.
