Australasian Conference Association (ACA) was granted approval to develop the Wahroonga Estate in 2010 under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and concept approval over the site under Part 3A of the Environmental Protection and Planning Act 1979.

The Wahroonga Estate Redevelopment project involves the extension of Sydney Adventist Hospital, the development of up to 500 residential dwellings, student accommodation, seniors housing, commercial and retail buildings, a K-12 school, nurse training facilities and expansion of religious facilities at the site.

The project also involves the conservation of 31.4 hectares of remnant bushland, which is the focus of this audit and is referred to throughout this report as ‘the site’.
