ATTACHMENT 1 CL……. OUTCOMES



1.1 Introduction
This Plan contains information on the vegetation communities of the Parramatta local government area (LGA), a comprehensive list of local native flora and fauna species, and the conservation status of significant flora and fauna species.
The data was collated from numerous bushland restoration reports for Council’s parks and reserves, local area studies completed by consultants, schools and Council and various research undertaken by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.
1.2 Ecological Communities of the Parramatta LGA
Parramatta LGA contains 11 vegetation communities (also known as ecological communities) as seen in Appendix A. It should be noted that these vegetation communities do not have distinct boundaries and grade into each other. As such, the “best fit” for each remnant has been provided.
The majority of these vegetation types are of conservation significance at the state level. A number of these vegetation types are also threatened and of conservation significance at the national level. These communities are rare and endangered due to their fragmentation and their overall reduction in size over the development and expansion of Sydney.
Table 1 shows the area of coverage for each ecological community in the Parramatta LGA. Appendix B shows the conservation significance of each vegetation remnant in the Parramatta LGA as modelled by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.
