Biodiversity Conservation

Nature reserves and other land within the urban and non-urban areas, which provide significant habitats for wildlife, will be managed and protected for nature conservation and linked to each other and the region by corridors that enable wildlife movement.

SHORT TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Identify additional required conservation reserves.
  • Assessment of areas that contribute to the landscape setting to identify the need for protection through planning variations.
  • Development of new recreational areas and protection of wildlife corridors in the Molonglo Valley.
  • Detailed investigations for future urban areas will address requirements for environmental impact assessments, including the biodiversity values.

MEDIUM TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Initiate planning amendment to protect landscape setting where planning policy not in place.
