STREET TREES AND STREETSCAPES POLICY ADOPTED BY COUNCIL

Published: Tuesday, 10 September 2019 at 9:44:17 AM

In May 2019, Shire of Dandaragan Councillors adopted a new Street Trees and Streetscapes Policy (7.4) which recognises the significance of streetscapes and naturally occurring and planted trees as integral to the identity of the Shire and that having an urban forest being shown to contribute to the health and wellbeing of the community. 

Supporting this policy is a new process for members of the public to organise a verge/swale makeover in your neighbourhood.  In addition to your own efforts to make your street attractive, you can request assistance from the Shire of Dandaragan to:

• remove weed or overgrown grass;
• breakup topsoil and do minor earthworks;
• deliver mulch; and, 
• plant. 

This policy aligns with the Envision 2029 Environment aspiration outcome for the Shire to undertake environmental practices, projects and initatives that enhance the environment and our liveability within it. Our role involves promoting programs to increase the quality and prevalence of appropriate trees and vegetation in town site public open space and road verges.

Please note, you need at least three (3) other households in your street or nearby streets in your neighbourhood to lodge a Streetscape Application.
