Native Vegetation

Native Vegetation Information Management system

The Native Vegetation Information Management system (NVIM) is an online tool to access Victoria’s native vegetation information.

NVIM map

NVIM map is a gateway to Victoria’s biodiversity and you can:

  • register for key projects
  • manage and track your participation in a project and agreements
  • explore biodiversity assets on your parcel of land
  • calculate the strategic biodiversity and native vegetation condition scores.

Native vegetation permitted clearing regulations

Generate a Biodiversity assessment report required as part of your permit application to remove, lop or destroy native vegetation.

Obligations in the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy area

This tool enables you to estimate the habitat compensation obligations for urban development and identify any conservation areas on parcels of land within the area covered by the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy and subject to an approval under section 146B of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth) for the Melbourne Strategic Assessment program.

Development is ongoing

Further functionality will become available as it is completed.

For more information and updates on the NVIM project, please visit the NVIM page on the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) website.

The information presented on the NVIM map services is extracted from DELWP spatial databases and is subject to periodic reviews to ensure information remains current.
