PROJECT OUTLINE
 

Precinct Urban Planning assisted Millmerran Power Management Pty Ltd, the owner of the Millmerran Power Station with town planning services and the development application for a Permanent Plantation of one million native trees on 1600ha of land located around the plant and coal mine south of Millmerran. The plantation aims to offset the carbon created by the power station and was approved by Toowoomba Regional Council in 2023.


The plantation uses part of the land resource surrounding the Millmerran Power Station. The plantation will be progressively planted in two (2) stages. The proposed planting regime involves a planting rate of approximately 400 – 500 plants per hectare. Planting will occur in autumn and spring. Species selections requires conformance with ERF environmental planting guidelines. Regional ecosystems, provenance, moisture content, soil type, seedling availability, and improving biodiversity outcomes (Koala habitat) all direct species selection.
