Case study: Flora and Fauna Assessment

First Field Environmental was commissioned to undertake a flora and fauna assessment report as part of a development application to demolish buildings, remove vegetation and construct multiple single storey dwellings.  

In completing the assessment, the specialists at First Field Environmental carried-out extensive stakeholder consultation and conducted field surveys to determine the flora and fauna species and population that are present or likely to be present in the area. 

After identifying that two threatened species and one population that was likely to exist in the vicinity of the site, an assessment of significance was prepared for each species and population listed under the TSC Act and significant impact assessments were also undertaken for those species and populations listed under the EPBC Act as Matters of National Environmental Significance.  

First Field Environmental’s practical advice and recommendations assisted its client to proceed with the development.
