Planting within the nature strip

Council supports residents to plant on nature strips. Nature strips are the public land between the footpath and kerb on residential streets.

The land is set aside for the provision of essential services such as water, gas, sewerage, telecommunications and electricity.

Nature strips contribute significantly to the amenity and biodiversity of our neighbourhoods. Council currently plants more than 1,000 street trees on nature strips in Glen Eira each year.

A permit is required from Council before planting on your nature strip. For further information on what may be planted on the nature strip and how to apply for a permit, download the Glen Eira Nature Strip Planting Guidelines at
