Ipswich Enviroplan marks 25 years in 2021. When established its aim was to acquire key bushland within the Ipswich City Council area to create conservation estates purchased with funding from a green levy. It wasn’t introduced without some controversy at the time. On the show my special guest is former Ipswich councillor and chairperson of the committee responsible for parks in 1996, Gerard Pender.
