Projects we have been working on recently @ litoria consulting:

  • Arrow Energy

Litoria ecologists have been conducting preliminary environmental and due diligence assessments of proposed development sites for Arrow Energy coal seam gas infrastructure throughout south western Queensland. This has involved the assessment of existing permits and approvals, identification of environmentally sensitive areas and environmental assessment against relevant local, state and commonwealth environmental regulations including Chapter 5A activities under the Environmental Protection Act.

  • Sunshine Coast Regional Council

Litoria ecologists have been commissioned by Sunshine Coast Regional Council to deliver a feasibility study to identify and assess the environmental aspects associated with construction of a proposed recreational trail along the Lake Weyba foreshore. The feasibility study involved the identification of the various land tenures, assessment of the development against relevant local, state and commonwealth environmental regulations and provision of various alignment options for the proposed trail route based on the findings of our ecologists.

  • Brisbane City Council

Litoria Consulting has been commissioned by Brisbane City Council to develop an Environmental Management Plan for their new City Fleet facility at Wacol, following on from a recently completed environmental audit and approvals strategy for the same facility. Development of the Environmental Management Plan will involve the identification of potential environmental impacts, development of monitoring and compliance measures, assessment of applicable environmental legislation, development of environmental management initiatives, assessment of potential risks, identification and handling of complaints, delivery of training to staff and delivery of environmental management targets.

  • Preliminary Environmental Assessments

Over the last month, Litoria ecologists have been conducting several preliminary environmental assessments and peer reviews of existing material for various property development sites in Brisbane’s western suburbs. These assessments have typically involved the peer review of existing environmental material and consultants reports, assessment of local, state and commonwealth environmental regulations, identification of potential environmental constraints and botanical and fauna surveys targeting conservation significant species including koalas.
