EPBC Referral: Eaton, WA – Construction of new bridge
The Shires of Harvey and Dardanup are proposing to construct a new bridge across the Collie River at Eaton to link the residential areas of Eaton in the Shire of Dardanup and Treendale in the Shire of Harvey.
The Project is being referred to the Department of the Environment under Part 3 of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999: Listed threatened species and communities (sections 18 and 18A), as it may result in the loss of an estimated 0.48 ha of known Western Ringtail Possum (Pseudocheirus occidentalis) habitat and 0.48 ha of potential foraging and roosting habitat for Black Cockatoos.
The Project may also result in the removal of a component of a locally significant wildlife corridor, and lead to the creation of potential barrier effects to the movement of the Western Ringtail Possum along the Collie River.
Submissions invited until Thursday 21 April 2016
