Applications to carry out a selection of disturbance activities on Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions’ managed lands can be applied for online via the department’s Disturbance Approval System (DAS).

The DAS improves the process to seek permission to carry out work which can potentially affect conservation values, as well as providing a consistent approach with assessing these activities and setting meaningful conditions to a proposal. It should be used for all disturbances (excluding mining) and includes activities such as maintenance or establishment of utilities, roads, phone towers. The system dashboard will show all pending applications and permissions issued.

Enquiries about the system should be sent to
