Offsets

DELWP require that offsets be determined based on the steps shown below (taken from the Guidelines). The way of determining offsets and the nature and scale of the required offsets differs depending on the risk-based assessment pathway that applies to your project.

Offsets

Offsets must be secured, to the satisfaction of the responsible and/or referral authority, before the native vegetation is removed. This could be either:

  • A security agreement for the offset site that includes an onsite management plan; or
  • Evidence of a secured third party offset, such as an allocated credit register extract from the native vegetation credit register.
