Greener Places Strategy

Consultation has concluded

Council is developing a Strategy to promote, maintain and enhance urban greening across the Central Coast by planting and maintaining trees in public areas called the Greener Places Strategy.

This draft, Central Coast wide strategy includes mechanisms to sustain and enhance the urban forest canopy across all land parcels in the urban suburbs of the Central Coast by:

  • increasing the level of tree planting in the 18 priority suburbs with the greatest level of Urban Heat Island Effect;
  • commencing successional planting in Council passive open space reserves;
  • ensuring that public trees that are removed are replaced by planting two new trees in the same suburb; and
  • increasing the requirement of private developers to complete high quality landscaping in medium and high density development through future changes to Council's Development Control Plan.

Editorial amendment to the Strategy: The Executive Summary states there are 17 priority suburbs, however this is a typographical error. There are 18 priority suburbs in total.
