The Indigenous Tree Canopy Species of Bankstown
Bankstown City Council
Bankstown Bushland Society submits the following comments re the Draft Local Area Plans now up for review: The Society is also concerned about the future of Cumberland Plain Woodland on the site of the University of Western Sydney at Milperra (known locally as “Wonga Smith’s Bush”).
We conclude that Panania’s Draft LAP should be put aside and revisited. This document with its lack of detail and information has not enabled residents to understand the proposed changes but has generated fear and confusion throughout this small community.
This submission seeks to address the issues of concern regarding the proposed future density around the Revesby Village. The current height restriction has in fact added to its individuality making it a friendly and welcoming area. We are very aware of the pressure for more diverse housing along the train corridors and this will ultimately change Revesby considerably.
The State Government should urgently investigate “a series of bushland management blunders in Bankstown” according to the Total Environment Centre. The Total Environment Centre director Mr Jeff Angel has said “we have numerous concerns about mismanagement of urban bushland in the Bankstown Local Government Area. The problems give grave cause to doubt Bankstown Council’s competency for urban bushland management.”
