Trees - should we be encouraging more tree planting in the City of Cockburn? Draft Subdivision and Development Street Tree Policy

Consultation has concluded

We sought your feedback on a draft policy designed to increase the number of trees in the city.

The aim of the draft Subdivision and Development Street Tree Policy was to:

  • Increase the number of street trees on the City's road reserves in new and infill areas by providing a framework for installation and management of the trees
  • Improve the appearance of streetscapes with trees suitable for shade, which is in line with the Council's Strategic Community Plan 2016 - 2026
  • Provide for the provision of new street trees associated with subdivision and/or development within the City.

Feedback was sought by 17 January 2017

Outcome Summary

Following community consultation, at its meeting on 9 March 2017 (OCM Minutes 09/03/17) Council resolved to adopt the draft local planning policy.
