  • I spoke to council why we couln't have trees on Butler St. Pennington, & was told that they would not plant them in front of housing trust houses, in case they would be bulldozed at a later date. But noticed trees planted in Arthur St. & Gilligan St. {north},Pennington, which has h/t homes. What is the policy ? We would like trees on Butler St.

    Tania asked about 5 years ago

    Butler Avenue, Pennington has been on the list for consideration for whole street planting for a few years now. We recently scoped this street for next year’s planting, but the list has not been finalised as yet. The process of choosing which streets are successful is done by assessing the street against the following :

    · Engineering road reconstruction or kerb and gutter/path projects

    · Requests for tree planting by residents of the street

    · No existing trees planted in the street

    · Suitable verge widths

    · Streets where the existing trees are in poor condition

    · Large number of gaps where no trees are planted

    · Proposed new housing developments

    If you would like to discuss this further please call David on 8408 1558.
