Community Input Sought on Management Plan for Garungup Park
The Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for Garungup Park in Mosman Park has been updated, and community input is sought to ensure that the new Plan meets community needs.
Garungup Park runs along the Swan River foreshore near Minim Cove and is home to a variety of flora and fauna. The Park is an important part of the Town’s green corridor and is valued by the local residents and the community who enjoy scenic walks by the river.
As part of its overall management strategy, and in keeping with industry best practice, the Town of Mosman Park develops EMPs for all of its major reserves, and is currently completing a revision of the EMP for Chidley Reserve. The original Plan for Garungup Park was devised eight years ago and the revised Plan assesses current and emerging threats, trends, and the actions required to preserve and protect the local biodiversity and amenity of the Park, now and into the future.
Acting Mayor Johnson said: “In the Plan, we will combat the 25 weed species currently found on site and specify the fire reduction activities required to protect the Park and residents living nearby”. “A key feature of the Plan,” she said, “is the five year-works program, with indicative costs, to help steer the work needed in Garungup Park to balance community needs and available resources.”
The Town is seeking comment on the Plan, which is available here, with a hard copy available for viewing at the Administration Centre, and will be available for comment up until the close of business on 22 October 2018.
To be considered, submissions and comments must be in writing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or hand-delivered to the Town’s customer service staff.
Enquires to Paddy Strano – Senior Environmental Conservation Officer on 9384 1633.
