Development

Population growth a major impact on the region’s natural environment


Urbanisation and its associated infrastructure has been responsible for considerable losses in vegetation, habitat, flora and fauna species.

Capricorn Conservation Council activities and advocacy in planning, centers on ensuring there is ecologically sustainable development and avoids inappropriate development in areas of conservation value and on floodplains. We advocate for climate responsive design and underpinning sustainable design principles to be incorporated in all developments – large or small, and provide submissions on development applications.
