Project Description     Development of access route to facilitate timber extraction


The Department does not propose to prepare an Environmental Statement.


This is a small scale project. Stone is only required for the initial 40m of the route. Mats will be used on the rest of the access route to minimise damage to surface vegetation and soil and will be lifted when the harvesting operation is completed. The planned route will avoid using the existing track adjacent to the nearby watercourse thereby minimising any impact to water quality.
