However, this clause does not apply to a development standard that is expressly excluded from the operation of this clause.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless the consent authority has considered a written request from the applicant that seeks to justify the contravention of the development standard by demonstrating:

(1)  The objective of this clause is to preserve the amenity of the area, including biodiversity values, through the preservation of trees and other vegetation.
(2)  This clause applies to species or kinds of trees or other vegetation that are prescribed for the purposes of this clause by a development control plan made by the Council.
Note.
 A development control plan may prescribe the trees or other vegetation to which this clause applies by reference to species, size, location or other manner.
(3)  A person must not ringbark, cut down, top, lop, remove, injure or wilfully destroy any tree or other vegetation to which any such development control plan applies without the authority conferred by:
(a)  development consent, or
(b)  a permit granted by the Council.
(4)  The refusal by the Council to grant a permit to a person who has duly applied for the grant of the permit is taken for the purposes of the Act to be a refusal by the Council to grant consent for the carrying out of the activity for which a permit was sought.

 As a consequence of this subclause, the activities concerned will require development consent. The heritage provisions of clause 150 will be applicable to any such consent.
(8)  This clause does not apply to or in respect of:
(a)  the clearing of native vegetation:
(i)  that is authorised by a development consent or property vegetation plan under the Native Vegetation Act 2003, or
(ii)  that is otherwise permitted under Division 2 or 3 of Part 3 of that Act, or
(b)  the clearing of vegetation on State protected land (within the meaning of clause 4 of Schedule 3 to the Native Vegetation Act 2003) that is authorised by a development consent under the provisions of the Native Vegetation Conservation Act 1997 as continued in force by that clause, or
