Rocky Springs Environmental Impact Statement

Project Description

Lloyd Consulting was awarded the opportunity to manage and deliver an EIS with Delfin Lend Lease under the new IPA amendment in Queensland. Delfin Lend Lease has proposed to develop the Rocky Springs site, 15 minutes south of Townsville as a master planned integrated community with an expected population of approximately 39,000 residents, by 2045. An EIS was triggered for this development  due to the presence of the endangered Black-throated Finch and threatened Squatter Pigeon on site.
