The DA approved the removal of 10 trees but by using Code 10/50 the developer was able to measure 10 metres from SIX neighbouring properties to take out 33 trees. He was stopped from removing two because they were 11 metres from a dwelling.
The Rural Fire Service failed to protect the Riparian Zones (the interface between land and the river) in the Greater Sydney Basin.
The Riparian Zone is significant because of its role in soil conservation, habitat biodiversity and the influence on fauna and aquatic ecosystems. This is especially true on this steep block in Barons Crescent.
