Plantrite Nursery has applied to the City of Swan for retrospective planning approval for the expansion of its existing 5 hectare (ha) native plant nursery on Lot 88 Bingham Road Bullsbrook (Lot 88).
This expansion is proposed to be completed over two stages totalling 10.67 ha; Stage 1 covering 4.76 ha and Stage 2 covering 5.91 ha. However approximately 2.5 ha of Stage 1 has already been constructed. The expansion will also require a new groundwater abstraction licence. Stage 2 is only proposed to be developed if this additional water allocation is not fully used after completion of Stage 1.
Lot 88 contains two occurrences of the Threatened Ecological Community (TEC) - Assemblages of plants and invertebrate animals of tumulus (organic mound) springs of the Swan Coastal Plain, which is associated with a Conservation Category Wetland (CCW) within Lot 88.
