Draft Urban Forest Strategy 2018-2023

Consultation has concluded

Do you have an interest in the green spaces, trees and other vegetation in the City? If so, we would like to hear from you!

The City has developed a draft Urban Forest Strategy for the years 2018-2023 in response to the priorities set in the Strategic Community Plan, Nedlands 2028 identifying the issues facing these areas in the future. The purpose of the strategy is to respond to changing weather patterns, water shortages, ground water availability, reducing tree canopy and the quality of infrastructure to support this environment.

The strategy primarily addresses public land and only monitors the condition of trees on private land. It provides guidance on ensuring that the City can achieve the tree canopy cover target which will result in increased shade to reduce the surface temperature and achieve increased social, environmental and economic benefits that enrich the quality of our City.
