    Well this is a new one on me. Maybe I was a bit slack in mowing my block? Now I have protected native grasses o_O. Once found these need to be mapped and not built on. That's as far as I my understanding goes. Anyone else know more? Is Wallaby Grass quite rare in Ballarat region?

    I'm wondering if I'd been more organised and had the block mowed as I should have done this would have ever been spotted? Do people have blocks of land inspected for native grasses before buying?

    I don't think it's a major problem (hopefully) but just interested in knowing a bit more about how this is managed when developing as I'd never heard of it.

    Check the zone and the Overlay. This will tell you whether or not it's going to be an issue. Check the exemptions from permit requirements under the Overlay. Allotment size could come into play

    Because, why would anyone want to preserve the natural Australian environment!

    It’s unAustralian.
