Environment

We are committed to delivering a stunning environmental outcome for all of Tasmania 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 116 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.

Flora and fauna assessments have been carried out and the the approved Environmental Management Plan specifically addresses:

  • Management of introduced weeds
  • Erosion control.
  • Native plant re-vegetation (complementing existing community programs).

Work has also been carried out over a number of years in accordance with the Weed Management plan. Now that all the many approvals for the site and pipeline are in place, further work is beginning in earnest on all aspects.

You can see from the wonderful photographs in the gallery the range of wildlife calling Arm End home. By focusing on the environment around us, we hope even more will join them.
