Following the 1991 closure of the region’s oldest mine, Southern Habitat was invited to join the rehabilitation team as part of Illawarra Coal’s obligation to remediate the site.
Whilst the steep nature of the site presented a number of issues, over the next decade we worked with the client and other stakeholders to remediate the site whilst addressing number of additional challenges, including:
- Damage by feral deer
- Damage caused by trail bike riders
- General trespassing
- Working amongst heritage-listed buildings
- Major landslide and sink hole
