City of Charles Sturt Biodiversity Action Plan

April 2017 – August 2017

Client: City of Charles Sturt

This project developed the first biodiversity specific management plan for the City of Charles Sturt. The Plan aims to enhance biodiversity, create diverse and connected open space, promote education, and implement strategic drivers. The Plan was developed using a three-staged approach: desktop review, workshop with neighboring Council representatives, and a workshop with community stakeholders.

The final Plan identifies four key biodiversity action areas: flora and fauna; urban forests; water quality and aquatic environments; and education and citizen science. For each action area, the Plan identifies a series of specific and measurable targets, strategies, actions and indicators, to guide management of biodiversity to 2030.
