Submissions and Appeals

The Urban Bushland Council has long advocated for bushland interests to all levels of Government.

Many of the submissions we have made have had some influence on altering government actions and policies, and occasionally have been extremely effective as for when we advocated to create Perth’s banksia woodlands as a Threatened Ecological Community.
