Credits Near Me NSW app

Credits Near Me NSW is a mobile and web-based application that allows users to spatially identify the types of biodiversity credits in potential supply and demand across New South Wales at a regional scale. It provides a quick and easy way for: 

  • landholders to discover the potential credit types on their land and if they are in demand
  • developers to understand where credit obligations could be met. 

Users can search by their location, street address or lot, and deposited plan (DP). The application requires internet connectivity. Developers can also search for potential like-for-like offset locations by plant community type or offset trading group.

A staged release of the draft Native Vegetation Regulatory map is underway.
