Munibung Creek rehabilitation

We're working with our community to rehabilitate a natural section of Munibung Creek in Cardiff.

Thanks to those who shared with us what they like about the creek now, and how they would like to see it improved. We are now reviewing the survey findings to inform the concept design.

There will be another opportunity to have your say about the rehabilitation of the creek in early 2020, once we a draft concept design and environment assessments are completed. Stay tuned.

We are rehabilitating Munibung Creek between Pendlebury Road and Gorleston Terrace to:

  • maintain the natural appearance of the waterway
  • stabilise the banks and creek bed to prevent further erosion
  • protect adjoining property and buildings from erosion
  • reduce the build-up of rubbish and weeds.

    Early in this project we asked residents and businesses that back onto this section of Munibung Creek to share with us what they like about the creek now, and how they would like to see it improved. We received 10 surveys from residents directly on the creek, which is a great result!

    This survey follows on from the discussions and complaints we have received from the local community over the years, and supports the need to rehabilitate this section of the creek.

    Here's a snapshot of what we heard:

    Here's a snapshot of what we heard:

    • The mature trees are valued by residents and neighbours
    • Flooding impacts and erosion control are key concerns for residents who can be impacted during heavy rains
    • Remove the weeds, rubbish and industrial waste that backs up in the creek and around large trees on the edge.
    • Establish native vegetation and some vegetation screening for residents
    • The work needs to be completed in a manner that does not disturb the habitat of native species in the area. These include the Spotted Pardaolote, Blue Wrens, Eels, Perons Frogs and Marsh Frogs and Yeloow Tail Black Cockatoos
    • Consider how this creek will be maintained in the future.
    Thanks for your ideas and considerations. Your input will inform the development of the concept design and environmental assessment to be carried out in early 2020.
  • Local residents and businesses are invited to help develop a plan to rehabilitate Munibung Creek
