Work on the Corridor is reaching an exciting phase, with three environmental consulting companies briefed yesterday about the Rehabilitation Plan.
The Cockburn Wetlands Centre, nestled amidst gum trees on the edge of Bibra Lake, provided a community feel for the briefing, hosted by community and government representatives.
The consultants now have two weeks to submit proposals about how they would go about drafting a rehabilitation plan, community engagement plan and communications plan.
The winning company will design and prepare a 10 year Rehabilitation Management Plan for the areas disturbed by the Roe 8 road project.
The plan must consider:
– the 18 hectares of cleared land plus the land adjacent to the cleared area
– the key vegetation
– partnerships with tertiary institutions to develop initiatives and monitoring to enhance future knowledge of rehabilitation techniques as well as monitor the progress of rehabilitation works
– enhancing the natural regeneration processes across the site
– opportunities for community involvement and participation.
