Client: City of Gold Coast Council
New Ground undertook an ecological assessment and protected plants flora surveys in relation to the Replacement of the Tallebudgera Creek Road Bridges No. 2 and 3 projects for the City of Gold Coast.
This project was relatively complex from a protected plants perspective as nine (9) species of Protected Plant (several also listed at Federal level) were recorded within the study area, comprising of 258 individual records.
New Ground worked closely with the City of Gold Coast team in order to explore opportunities to minimise impacts on the plants and the project with a view to minimising project delays.
New Ground managed the protected plants permitting process and secured approvals for the project in a timely and cost-effective manner.
New Ground assisted Council to understand what the relevant environmental planning triggers were for the project and how to navigate these.
