Some of the concrete tank traps, removed from the shoreline in October 2020, have been relocated toward the front of Hunter Water’s land along Fullerton Street, Stockton. This is an interim measure to improve site security and protect the land during rehabilitation work.
Much of the noxious weed bitou bush has now been removed, and further ground work and reestablishment of native plant species is planned.
A large amount of dumped rubbish has also been removed, highlighting the increasing number of four-wheel drives illegally accessing the land. Vehicles driving on this area damages the environment, especially during re-vegetation, and is a safety risk.
A shortlist of three fencing types is currently being developed. These options will be discussed with the community representatives of Stockton Community Group within the next few weeks.
