Details of the locations and extent of the off-site plantings are fully described in the proposed Voluntary Planning Agreement
The Biodiversity Offset Package is in accordance with the Biodiversity Management Plan prepared by Cumberland Ecology dated November 2011 and the Off-Site Compensatory Bushland Planting Report by AECOM dated 27 November 2014.
Who is involved in the VPA?
