ENGAGEMENT OUTCOMES

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback and to those who joined us at the community information drop in session on Saturday 7 December 2019.

The feedback we received demonstrated local community support for the concept plan.

A hot topic was the proposal to plant exotic and deciduous trees within the reserve. Our Urban Forest team advise that many things need to be considered when planting trees on streets and reserves including above and below ground services, soil types and coastal exposure. We try to select the right tree for the right location and a sustainable urban forest has a broad range of tree species (native/exotic) to safe guard against pest and disease. Deciduous trees provide summer shade and winter sun and many are suitable for use within our area. Annually we plant thousands of native trees in streets, reserves and creek lines providing habitat and corridors for wildlife movement. There will be a mix of native trees and exotic species planted within the reserve that will include legacy trees that in future years will be a feature of the area.

Construction is expected to be undertaken within the 2020-21 financial year subject to Council budget approval.
