We would like to take this opportunity to notify you of some early operational works that will be commencing on site at The Sanctuary, Warner in the coming weeks.

Operational Works Approvals

The first stage of The Sanctuary, known as Lot 2, was approved in December 2020. This site has all the appropriate Operational Works approvals including Bulk Earthworks, Civil, Landscaping, Rehabilitation Works, Fauna Underpass and Warner Road Upgrade.

A Bulk Earthworks Operational Works approval is also in place for the second phase (Stage 3 & 4), known as Lot 1. These works are separate to the Development Approval granted by Moreton Bay Regional Council in July and are permitted to continue while the Notice to Appeal progresses through the proper channels.

An Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) approval is in place across all stages.

What will be involved?

Shadforth has been appointed to deliver the civil works, which is expected to take up to 42 weeks.

The site team will operate between the approved hours of 6:30am to 6:30pm Monday to Saturday.

Traffic Management Plans will be in place to manage access and egress from the site on Warner Road, and road safety personnel will be in place to assist with the safe flow of traffic. Access for residents and emergency services will be maintained.

Best practice dust mitigation will also be employed throughout the civil works phase, including the deployment of water trucks, and we have plans in place with our immediate site neighbours to mitigate these impacts.

Environmental Safeguards

Special koala fencing is being established around the site to keep koalas within the established habitat areas and away from the construction site.

During this stage of development, some trees will be removed from the site, many of which are introduced weed varieties such as Camphor Laurel. A small number of eucalypts will be removed, and fauna spotters will be on hand during clearing. The koala habitat area will not be adversely impacted and will be significantly revegetated, with expert input from environmental and koala experts, over the next five years.

We will be providing regular updates as development progresses at The Sanctuary. If you would prefer to receive these updates via email, please send your name and preferred email address to reception@ausbuild.com.au
