The 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Scheme provides an additional way for NSW residents who live near bushland, to better prepare their homes for potential bush fires.
If you live in a designated area you're able to clear certain vegetation near your home without having to get approval from the local council or land services office.
The NSW Rural Fire Service provides an online tool so you can check whether you live in a designated area. Use the tool on the day you intend clearing, as you must follow the eligibility and/or rules in place at the time you clear any vegetation.
You're only permitted to clear your own land.
