But isn’t the bushland protected?

The bushland is a Threatened Ecological Community. A Conservation Advice for the Banksia Woodlands was approved 26 August 2016 and has been ignored by the State.

The Conservation Objective:

To mitigate the risk of extinction of the Banksia Woodlands of the Swan Coastal Plain ecological community, and maintain its biodiversity and function, through the protections provided under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and through the implementation of priority conservation actions (see section 5, below).
