Registered and regulated trees are both considered sub-types of protected trees. Protected trees can be located using the Significant Species, Vegetation Communities and Registered Trees Filter ACTmapi, as can Tree Management Precincts (all trees within a Tree Management Precinct are also protected).
If your block has any protected trees, approval of the project will need to be sought from the Tree Protection Unit.
If the species of tree is relevant for your application, for example it is listed as a ‘Problematic Tree Species’, then we can help you determine the species of tree. We may need you to provide photos or access to the property to examine the tree. There are useful fact sheets for all tree species in the ACT which can be accessed here: https://www.cityservices.act.gov.au/trees-and-nature/trees/tree-species-for-canberra.
If the project does not require development approval - if it is not a secondary residence and complies with all the relevant rules - then we just need to lodge an Application to Undertake a Tree Damaging Activity. If this is approved, then we can go straight to Building Approval.
