Protected Plant Survey

If a project is not exempt from the requirements of the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and the project area contains a “high risk” area for protected plants as indicated on the Protected Plant Trigger Map, the conduct of a Protected Plant Survey in accordance with the Flora Survey Guidelines – Protected Plants (Queensland Government 2014) is required. The results of the survey will determine if the project is exempt from requiring a Protected Plant Clearing Permit (if no protected plants are recorded) or whether an application for a Protected Plant Clearing Permit is required.

The surveys must be undertaken by a “suitably qualified person” as defined by the guideline.

BAAM has undertaken Protected Plant Surveys for a number of projects, and has prepared follow-up Species Management Plans to accompany applications for Protected Plant Clearing Permits.
