The Biosis Newcastle Resource Group has been instrumental in developing a new set of flora and fauna survey Guidelines for Lake Macquarie City Council.
Our Newcastle team have worked closely with the Council in developing the Guidelines which are now being used to assist clients in the preparation of development applications that comply with Council requirements.
Wyong Shire Council has recently used Lake Macquarie City Council Guidelines as the basis for their updated Flora and Fauna Survey Guidelines and other Councils in the Hunter region are also likely to implement them in the near future.
As Brian Wilson in our Newcastle office says, “the Guidelines ensure that the right amount of information on the flora and fauna issues relevant to the region is collected and presented in a way that streamlines the approvals process. Good for Councils, good for developers”.
For more information, give Brian a call on 0407 980 961 or any of our team in our Newcastle office on (02) 4968 4901.
