Powerline Installation for NPWS, DECC

We prepared a Review of Environment Factors (REF) for the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services for the installation of underground electricity power lines to supply a continuous supply of electricity to the Quarantine Station at North Head within Sydney Harbour National Park.

This report assesses the impact of the proposal on the environment as well as flora and fauna and heritage values and determines if these impacts are likely to significantly affect the conservation of the wildlife in particular Threatened species, populations and ecological communities. Practical recommendations to ameliorate the impact are given.

A Test of Significance was carried out to determine the significance of impacts on the Long-nose Bandicoot (Perameles nasuta), Acacia terminalis var. terminalis and the threatened ecological community; Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub.
