Roads and Maritime Services is working on the extension of the M1 Princes Motorway to bypass the suburb of Albion Park Rail. After consideration of all practical alternatives, this project will impact on a small portion (0.17 hectares) of land within the 22 hectare Croom Reserve, owned by Shellharbour City Council and subject to the Croom Reserve conservation agreement. A draft variation to the conservation agreement has been prepared by the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Trust, in consultation with the Office of Environment and Heritage, Shellharbour City Council and Roads and Maritime.
As required under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 the variation is being exhibited. At the end of the public exhibition the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Trust, in consultation with, Shellharbour City Council and Roads and Maritime will review all submissions and prepare a submissions report for the Minister of the Environment to consider.
