Invitation for public comment on Residential Subdivision 803-853 Taylors Road, Caroline Springs, Victoria

The proposed action is identified as a residential development at 803-853 Taylors Rd, Caroline Springs, Victoria (EPBC 2020/8640). The proposed action is to be undertaken by Jen & Jacq Developments Pty Ltd. The proposed action is a controlled action under the EPBC Act. The controlling provisions are listed threatened species and communities (Sections 18 & 18A). The relevant matter of National Environmental Significance is Growling Grass Frog Litoria rainiformis. No other matters of national environmental significance are likely to be impacted. The proposed action will include clearance and development across the site, including the revegetation of the habitat corridor along the Stony Hill Creek and the creation of two Growling Grass Frog wetlands in the south-eastern corner of the development. The two Growling Grass Frog wetlands to be constructed are appropriate offsets in compensating for the residual significant impacts, as they are deemed to satisfy the principles of the department’s EPBC Act Environmental Offset Policy.
