Project 28 Pty Ltd has lodged a request to modify planning approval previously granted for the Kings Forest Stage 1 project. The modification request seeks approval for a revised Koala Plan of Management (KPOM). 


The modification was publicly exhibited during 29 June – 18 August 2017. During exhibition we received over 200 submissions. The Proponent has now lodged a Response to Submissions (RtS) report to address issues raised by the community, Council and other government agencies during the exhibition period.


What changes have been made in the RtS? 

The RtS has revised the proposal to:

  • Increase the on-site compensatory koala habitat from 56.7 ha to 61.78 ha, comprising:
    • 55.52 ha of land within Precincts 1 to 14 (25.26 ha of primary habitat and 30.26 ha of secondary habitat)
    • 6.26 ha land within the east-west corridor (3.4 ha of primary habitat and 2.86 ha secondary habitat)
    • Plant 24,712 koala food trees across the site
  • Retain the requirement to plant food trees within a 27 ha parcel of land within the Cudgen Nature Reserve
  • Revise the locations of koala fencing and fauna underpasses, and amend the timing for the construction of this infrastructure
  • Change the ongoing monitoring and management measures for koalas.


The Response to Submissions (RtS) report is available on our major projects website.
