This investigation responds to a Ministerial Direction to undertake an independent audit of the implementation of commitments in the Biodiversity Plan for the Gungahlin Strategic Assessment as detailed in the Gungahlin Strategic Assessment Biodiversity Plan.
Matters of National Environmental Significance are protected under the Commonwealth Government’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, through the Gungahlin Strategic Assessment Biodiversity Plan, an agreement between ACT and Commonwealth Governments.
This is the first independent audit of the implementation of the Gungahlin Strategic Assessment.
The ACT Government agreed to all eight recommendations in this report.
Five Corrective Action Requests were issued. These have been addressed and the audit closed.
The findings were incorporated into the review of the Biodiversity Plan.
