An enforceable undertaking was accepted on 31 October 2012 from Marloelle Pty Ltd following clearing between late 2008 and mid 2011 where work at the company's Windmill Hill residential estate cleared 4.5 hectares of the critically endangered ecological community ‘White Box – Yellow Box – Blakely’s Red Gum and derived native grasslands’.

An amount of $184,000 will be spent on the management of weeds in the affected ecological community remaining on site, research into threats affecting the ecological community, rehabilitation of a portion of the ecological community on site and signage and fencing to identify and protect the community during rehabilitation actions.
