Planning and Development Committee recommends supporting SE Qld Koala Conservation Strategy

Toowoomba Regional Council’s (TRC) Planning and Development Committee today (September 14, 2021) recommended supporting the Phase 1 Implementation Plan (2020-2022) of the South East Queensland Koala Conservation Strategy 2020-2025.

TRC Planning and Development Committee chair Cr Megan O’Hara Sullivan said the Department of Environment and Science was seeking local government support for the first phase of the strategy from 2020-2022, which involved limited actions in the Toowoomba Region.

Cr O’Hara Sullivan said the strategy applied to the Toowoomba Urban Extent that was in the boundary of the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2017.

“The state government has mapped almost 9000ha of koala habitat in the Toowoomba Region, which is a small geographic area in South East Queensland,” Cr O’Hara Sullivan said.
