Lendlease Australia responds: Biobanks at Figtree Hill
- 29 Jan 2021
The locations of our biobanks (see map below) were determined using several criteria, including the quality of existing remnant bushland, proximity to existing adjacent bushland and ability to contribute to the growth of the Campbelltown koala population.
- Our Noorumba-Mt Gilead BioBank forms part of the Menangle Creek corridor as nominated by the NSW Chief Scientist.
- Our Macarthur-Onslow BioBank is located directly adjacent to the heritage-listed Mount Gilead Estate.
- Our Hillsborough BioBank is located in the centre of our site and protects the last remaining Iron Bark Forest on the site.
These important biobanks form part of our program of conservation actions supported by local, state and federal government, and will ensure the protection of critically endangered Sandstone Shale Transition Forest and Cumberland Plain Woodland.
For more detailed information, please refer to the documents available here.
NB: Beulah and Noorumba biobank sites fall outside our Figtree Hill development and aren’t managed by Lendlease.
