Clearing Permit CPS 818/1 was granted to Main Roads Western Australia (Main Roads) on 11 November 2005 by the then Department of Environment. The clearing permit authorises the clearing of native vegetation for a range of defined activities across Western Australia necessary for the upgrade and maintenance of the State’s main road network. The permit has since been amended eleven times with the latest amendment (CPS 818/12) made on 11 December 2014.

CPS 818/12 was due to expire on 30 June 2018. In order to allow sufficient time to complete the review, DWER has extended the permit’s duration by 12 months. CPS 818/13 now has an expiry date of 30 June 2019 and is otherwise identical to the previous version of the permit. A copy of the amended permit is available on DWER’s FTP website.The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) is currently reviewing the operation of CPS 818 to ensure that it meets community expectations with respect to transparency and protection of the environment, whilst also providing an efficient approvals pathway for important road safety initiatives.

The decision to amend the permit duration is subject to appeal. The details of the appeal period can be found on DWER’s website here.
