Atlas Ecology has worked on a range of projects across Victoria.
Our clients have included local government, planning firms,
private developers, landholders and telecommunications companies.

A selection of completed and current projects include:

Flora and Fauna Assessment and Net Gain Analysis
for a proposed rural subdivision in Glenaroua

A 170 hectare rural property in Glenaroua was assessed to
determine the location and condition of ecological and riparian
features at the site. Species and communities/habitats of ecological
significance were identified and potential legislative implications
related to proposed works were provided. Ecological impacts
identified at the site formed the basis for protection and
management measures recommended within the resultant report.

Vegetation Assessment for a proposed
development in Frankston South

A 0.2 hectare urban residential property in Frankston South was
assessed to determine the location and condition of ecological
and riparian features at the site. Species and communities of
ecological significance were identified and potential legislative
implications relevant to the proposed works were provided.
Floristic and riparian values at the site were assessed and
mapped and recommendations provided to avoid and minimise
impacts to vegetation and riparian areas.

Vegetation Management Plan for
a rural property in Woodend

A 13 hectare rural property in Woodend was assessed to determine
the location and condition of ecological features at the site.
Key features included areas of indigenous grasses; modified
remnants of three vegetation communities and a creek tributary.
Management recommendations were provided to protect and
improve vegetation and riparian values present at the site.

Flora and Fauna Assessments and Net Gain
Analyses for proposed road upgrades in
Endeavour Hills, Coldstream and Olinda

Roadside reserves were assessed to determine the location
and condition of ecological features at three sites.
Species and communities/habitats of ecological significance
were identified and potential legislative implications related
to the proposed works were provided. Ecological impacts
identified at the site formed the basis for protection and
management measures recommended within the resultant report.
The assessment also determined the quality and quantity of
native vegetation present within the proposed road upgrade
footprints. The extent of proposed vegetation removal was
identified in habitat hectares and the appropriate Net Gain
offset targets were calculated based on the latest development
plans. Avoidance and minimisation measures were
recommended and further measures to protect and improve
vegetation at the site were provided.

Offset Management Plan for proposed
vegetation removal at a site in Gisborne

A proposed offset site in Riddells Creek was assessed
to determine its feasibility as an offset for permitted
vegetation removal in nearby Gisborne. The site supported
small modified remnants of one vegetation community which
qualified to be used as a protection offset. Other areas at the
offset site qualified to be used as a revegetation offset.
Offset criteria were addressed and management recommendations
for the offset site were formulated into an Offset Management Plan.
