Environment

We are committed to delivering a stunning environmental outcome for all Tasmanians and believe this magnificent site can become one of the state’s s most widely used and enjoyed areas of public land.

Our aim is to return the 121 hectare site to native habitat for plants and animals in a structured and effective way.

Detailed planning for the environmental rehabilitation aspect of the project has been done with the Weed Management Plan and Site Rehabilitation Plans approved by both the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE) and the Clarence City Council.

We have been conducting regular maintenance on site, including rubbish clean-ups and mowing and slashing the regular fire breaks and access ways.

Botanical assessments for the site have been completed and the outcomes from these works have been included into the site Weed Management and Revegetation Plan. This plan specifically addresses:

  • Management control of environmental weeds to improve the condition of the site;
  • Outlines the revegetation methodology and maintenance for the site that will promote the establishment of natives species and fauna/avifauna habitat; and
  • Rehabilitation of areas of erosion.
    Work on site, has continued to meet the requirements of the Weed Management and Revegetation Plan. 

From the wonderful photographs throughout the site, you c an see the range of wildlife calling Arm End home. By focusing on the environment around us, we hope even more will join them.

Tasmania’s night skies are a splendour to behold – watching the Aurora Australis dance across the skyline is one of nature’s exquisite gifts we are fortunate to experience.

The Australasian Dark Sky Alliance (ASDA) brings together groups actively working to preserve night skies and promote environmentally responsible outdoor lighting. All underpinned by science-based evidence.

Arm End is a proud supporter of ASDA and is working with them to develop a sensitive lighting plan for the site and to further promote night sky awareness and preservation.

There is a clear and significant opportunity in the case of this Project to set a new standard of sustainable golf development in Australia.

Arm End is coming forward with a blueprint for the kind of golf course developments we want to see in the future – full public access, numerous nongolfing activities across the site, sensitive design and placement of golf holes, rehabilitation of land and a genuine ambition to contribute to the quality of life for the wider community.

GEO, December 2015

Arm End is creating a regenerative, world class public access golf course that demonstrates high standards of environmental management for the course and the entire site. This project is now registered to start the process for certification of the highest level from the Golf Environment Organization (GEO), an international not-for-profit dedicated to helping accelerate sustainable golf around the world.

GEO says “Fostering nature, conserving resources, strengthening communities and taking climate action … golf has an opportunity to be part of the solution.”

GEO Certification will sit Arm End alongside the home of golf, St Andrews, and many other large and small courses around the world, all with sustainability at their heart.
