Background

Council has developed an Urban Tree Canopy Plan (draft):

  • to improve our tree canopy and wildlife habitats;
  • to create healthy and diverse landscaping in our streets and parks; and
  • to contribute to the health and wellbeing of all that enjoy our area.

The Urban Tree Canopy Plan (draft) was prepared in response to Notice of Motion No 16/2018 – Greening of the Northern Beaches.
