The EPA has transmitted its Report and a revised Draft Environmental Protection (Western Swamp Tortoise Habitat) Policy 2010
to the Minister for Environment.Release Date:
1 November 2010Details:
The Environmental Protection (Western Swamp Tortoise Habitat) Policy 2002 was gazetted on 18 February 2003 and has had the force of law since that date. The EPP was developed to protect the known habitat of the Western Swamp Tortoise within the City of Swan. Since this time the Department of Environment and Conservation have successfully translocated tortoises from the Perth Zoo to areas within the Shire of Gingin.
Once the revised draft has been considered and approved by the Minister for Environment and published in the Western Australian Government Gazette, the approved EPP is then put before Parliament where it is subject to disallowance.
