The submission concludes .....
The initiatives within the Bahrs Scrub plan which should be included firstly feature a koala survey and tracking as Logan City does not have a Koala Strategy and Recovery Plan which has been undertaken in Redland City Council 2008-2012. The redesign of the road network, corridor network and storm water provisions has large impacts on future liveability and sustainability for the Precinct. The Planning Tools have a range of new and old instruments which should be consolidated to retain Endangered Vegetation on Windaroo Creek and in the Dry Rainforest Scrub in SMAs. A TEMPORARY LOCAL PLANNING INSTRUMENT (TLPI) Vegetation should be used, particularly in the northern part of the precinct to stop pre emptive clearing.
