A considerable part of our land will be a conservation area in which we will maintain plant and cultivate suitable native local endangered plants and trees. Most of our land will be appropriately managed to maintain the tree canopy while reducing fuel loads from bush litter. The development of our site will see only approximately 3% of our land completely cleared of trees to make space for the structures.
All trees in the development envelope have been professionally surveyed and assessed. Flora & fauna, arborist and heritage assessments have been conducted and included in our applications to Council.
