Cr Rogerson Verrierdale vegetation clearing
  • Tuesday 29 August 2017

Council has completed an investigation into the recent clearing of vegetation on the property boundary between privately-owned land at 82 Venning Road, Verrierdale and the Eumundi Conservation Park which is owned by the State Department of National Parks, Sports & Racing.

 

The investigation revealed the clearing was been undertaken for the purpose of constructing a new boundary fence. The scale of the clearing within the privately owned property has exceeded the exempt clearing provisions under council’s Planning Scheme and therefore officers will be seeking appropriate rehabilitation and revegetation within the property.

 

Council officers have been advised that permission was obtained from the State Department of National Parks, Sports & Racing for clearing within the Eumundi Conservation Park.

 

Council is currently awaiting feedback from the State Government to discuss the extent of their approval for the clearing.
