Urban Forest Strategy

We Asked — You Said — We Did is our way of showing how your feedback contributes to our decisions. Check out how you helped develop the Draft Urban Forest Strategy. 

We asked

Council sought community feedback on the first Glen Eira Urban Forest Strategy which was developed to provide a clear and pragmatic action plan aimed at achieving a turnaround in the current trajectory of canopy loss

You said

Community feedback indicated the desire for more trees and higher canopy targets.

We did

Council reviewed and increased the canopy targets while noting the significant challenges involved. Achieving higher canopy coverage will require a collaborative effort from the whole community including State Government, the development community and private landowners. The Urban Forest Strategy was endorsed by Council on 29 June 2021.
