Bayside’s Urban Forest Strategy aims to deliver urgent, meaningful action on climate change and enhance and protect our living environment.

A key action of the Urban Forest Strategy is to develop Precinct Plans for each suburb to guide tree planting and greening on a local level, prioritising the areas that need it most.

Each Precinct Plan will also contain different planting pallettes to enhance the visual and natural character of each local area.

The draft Precinct Plan for Beaumaris is the first to be developed.

We’re seeking community feedback to ensure this Precinct Plan will help support residents to green their own spaces, identify ideal locations for priority planting, and introduce plant species that will enhance biodiversity and retain the leafy character of Beaumaris.

Draft Precinct Plans for all other suburbs are expected to be open for community consultation in early to mid-2023. Please select the +Subscribe button above to receive updates about this project.
