Proposed Turf Farm, Liddelow Road, Banjup

Project
Proponent: 
Proposal description: 

The proposed turf farm is located within the catchment of the Peel-Harvey estuarine system, and is within the Jandakot Underground Water Pollution Control Area and Public Water Supply Area and is also in close proximity to Lake Banjup. The soils are of the Jandakot series of the Bassendean Association and have almost no ability to retain applied phosphorus or nitrogen.

The proposal is for the growth of couch grass (Cynodon dactylon) in the form of turf in a readily accessible area south of the river because of the disproportionate concentration of turf farms north of Perth and the forecast of demand exceeding supply.
