Blue Earth Environmental Pty Ltd were a key part of the team, led by NGH Pty Ltd, who assessed the ecological values of a 3,250 ha area which had recently come into the Sunshine Coast urban footprint. Together, we proposed an ‘environmental network’ which will be enhanced and protected in order to sustain biodiversity as the site is developed over the next decade and into the future. Blue Earth Environmental completed aquatic ecology surveys and associated reporting, as well as taking part in a series of workshops with other disciplines to identify criteria for protected areas.

Sunshine Coast Council, the client, commended the project team for their contribution to a Structure Plan that is considered extremely robust and provides a strong foundation to move forward.
