What works are planned?
From August to October 2020, a team of professional bush regeneration contractors will be working their way along the riverbank, controlling the weeds along the project area, assisting the regeneration of local native riparian vegetation. Bush regeneration will be carried out using best practice methods that comply with Australian Standards to minimise chemical use to protect the community and protect the health of the River.
Due to considerable costs involved, the control and removal of large camphor laurel trees and giant bamboo is not included this project.
In some areas where the banks are bare, local native riparian plants will be planted to enhance the riparian zone and stabilise erosion areas. Around 400 plants will be planted including lomandra, lilli pillis, and sandpaper fig.
This consultation has concluded.
