Mitchel Hanlon Consulting provided surveying, contract management and project management services to the client.
In August 2013, Mitchel Hanlon Consulting (MHC) engaged Niche Environment and Heritage (Niche) to re-do the ecological assessment of the site. Niche conducted the preliminary assessment and found that the CEEC was localised to the eastern half of the site only. Discussions with the department enabled the referral to be split which allowed the development to progress on the western side of the site while the eastern side was subject to more vigorous assessment.
At the time of this post, this assessment is ongoing.
This approach allowed the client to finalise the development of 22 lots on the western side of the site and satisfy outstanding sales contracts. In time, it is hoped the remaining eastern section will be developed in a manner sympathetic to the Box-Gum Ecological Community.
