Ok. I don't work for DERM and I'm not a planner so I don't know how they make their decisions. It looks as though a lot of the land surrounding your block has already been cleared and this is shown in the veg maps. The veg map that I have used here was made in 2006 and is the most recent version available from DERM.
I can tell you that most of the site of your block is currently classified as remnant vegetation with status 'Not of Concern'. The forest is Eucalypt forest 12.9-10.17 on sedimentary rock with >10,000 ha remaining in this class. The information for this forest type can be found here: http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/wildlife...gional_ecosystems/details.php?reid=12.9-10.17
90m to the North East of the location that you sent me has vegetation status 'Of concern- Dominant' (is this part of your block?). The forest is a Eucalypt forest 12.3.11 on alluvial plains. There are several wetland trees that exist within the group (eg Melaleuca Quinquenervia, which lives at the fringe of water bodies)- might be boggy in places. The information for this forest type can be found here: http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/wildlife.../regional_ecosystems/details.php?reid=12.3.11
I've made a KML (Google Earth file) so that you can see the different vegetation types on your Google Earth map but I can't attach it on Somersoft, so can you please PM me your email address and I will send it to you?
I've attached a jpeg of the area for a general overview, but the Google Earth one is best.
