Queensland biodiversity and vegetation offsets special features

This document describes the process used to create the Biodiversity Planning Assessment-derived Offsets Special Feature datasets, to be utilised in the Ecological Equivalence Methodology. The Queensland Government Ecological Equivalence Methodology outlines 14 special feature criteria that are to be considered when determining the ecological equivalence of a proposed development site and offset site. The Biodiversity Planning Assessments (BPAs) provide 12 of these special features, and this dataset contains the ratings and scores for these special features. These special features include BPA Criteria H (priority species), Criteria I (special biodiversity value areas), and Criteria J (corridors). For bioregions without a BPA, surrogate datasets were developed and included.
