The Plan gives Kangaroo Island Council delegated authority to clear, and approve clearance by another party, under the Native Vegetation Act within clear guidelines.

The Local Government Act also requires members of the public to obtain approval from Council before undertaking any works on a roadside. Works include, but not limited to: Clearance of vegetation for the construction or replacement of a fence line and construction of a property access. (See Roadside Vegetation application forms.)
