1.       This doesn’t tell us much about where they are going to clear from.

2.       It doesn’t tell us where they are going to develop the additional bushland.

3.       It doesn’t explain how they will create old trees with hollow branches in a newly planted stand of replacement trees.

4.       The map was useless.  It is just a Google map with a pointer halfway between Tharwa and Corin Dam.

Does anyone know contact details of the Project manager so that one might seek answers to these questions?

Push to expand Mugga Lane tip – from ABC Website

Posted 1 hour 11 minutes ago

Map: ACT

The ACT Government says about 10 hectares of endangered box-gum woodland will need to be cleared in order to expand Canberra's Mugga Lane tip.

A proposal to expand the tip by 37 hectares is in its final stages of approval.

It would cater for Canberra's waste disposal needs for another 30 years but could affect nearby woodlands.

Project manager David Roberts says part of the project would involve developing a larger woodland for endangered species.

"A rarer type of woodland in the current nature reserve system which is mostly on the ridges and therefore quite attractive. It's three-times the size," he said.

"It needs a little bit of management, which we're prepared to do in terms of managing woodland and controlling feral animals, but we think that once we've done that it'll be a far better fit for the nature reserve."

ACT No Waste director Chris Ware says the Territory is also on track to reach a 90 per cent recycling target over that time.

"There comes a point in time when some materials we generate just can't be recycled," he said.

"Asbestos is certainly a big one, there'll always be some of that, that you can't do anything with."
