We aim to plant 1,500 new trees every year in the City of Canada Bay as part of our Urban Canopy Program, which helps to support our community to live in vibrant, resilient places that connect people.
Urban canopies not only help keep streets cooler, the trees also remove carbon, produce more oxygen, provide habitat and filter stormwater and air pollution as well. A bonus to this is that street tree canopies are beautiful and add charm to our streets.
This page provides information about the streets we are currently planting new trees on. We ask our community to provide feedback and work together with us to ensure the right tree is in the right place to grow!
Our engagement process
Timeline item 1
Our tree team identify suitable streets and parks with space for new trees.
Timeline item 2
We look at the street or park and find the best placement and species for the area.
Timeline item 3
We share our ideas with you and seek feedback on placement and species. The project team will also visit to discuss plans with the community.
Due to social distancing measures advised by NSW Health in response to COVID-19, we are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our community. As such, we are not holding drop-in sessions for community consultations at this time. We ask that you provide written feedback via the form on each suburb page. If you need clarification you can request a call back via the form, or call Wendy at the number provided on this page.
Timeline item 4
We incorporate feedback into final plans and share them.
Timeline item 5
We keep the community updated on when we are going to plant them, so they can join in!
