Projects we have been working on recently @ litoria consulting:

New Hope Group – Property Map of Assessable Vegetation

Environmental scientists at Litoria Consulting were recently commissioned by New Hope Group to prepare a Property Map of Assessable Vegetation (PMAV) for the proposed redevelopment of an abandoned mine site west of Brisbane. Our team of scientists used a combination of spatial analysis and botanical survey to resolve differences between observed regional ecosystem types and extents and that indicated by the Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) Regional Ecosystem and Remnant Map. Litoria’s demonstrated experience in plant identification, land zone identification and GPS survey of vegetation extents meant that our scientists were able to successfully resolve map discrepancies and reduce regulatory burden and compliance costs for our client.

Australian International Islamic College – Preliminary Environmental Assessment

In the last month, Litoria Consulting have completed a Preliminary Environmental Assessment (PEA) for the Australian International Islamic College. The purpose of the PEA was to review potential local, State and Commonwealth environmental legislation to identify constraints and opportunities for future master plan development of the site. Litoria’s PEA identified a number of environmental planning issues would need to be considered as part of proposals to develop the site, together with development opportunities.

City Plan Submission

Litoria Consulting has recently completed a number of submissions on behalf of land owners relating to proposed changes under the Draft CityPlan 2014. Litoria’s objective and evidence-based approach validated proposed environmental overlay and zoning changes where supported, and suggested amendments were put forward for adoption by Council.
