Land Management

Indigenous Design Land Management is a dynamic environmental consultancy specialising in Ecological assessment, Land management planning, and Environmentally sensitive landscape design.


Indigenous Design Land Management is an established presence in ecological consultancy, providing practical and innovative solutions to a broad range of clients across Melbourne and Victoria.


IDLM has a thorough understanding of natural resource management and undertakes a wide range of projects, with a focus on the environmental values of specific areas.


The scope of these projects varies from flora and fauna assessments and landscape concept plans for private landholders, through to major ecological assessments and land management planning/reviews for the coal mining industry.


All our staff are highly experienced in on-ground environmental rehabilitation works and adept at combining legislative requirements with hands on management practices.




IDLM has updated its procedures and assessment methodologies to reflect the new requirements of the Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) which now replaces the Wildfire Management Overlay (WMO). We offer a number of services in relation to bushfire hazard mitigation including preliminary property assessments, Bushfire Site Assessments and Management Statements to meet the BMO, and Landscape Design based on fundamental principles for bushfire prone areas.
