Urban Forest Strategy

Consultation has concluded

The Vic Park Collective and the Vic Park Trees were engaged by the Town of Victoria Park to write an Urban Forest Strategy. The result of a community-initiated and community driven process, the strategy is needed to expand and better manage trees within our Town - on both public and private land - and to achieve our tree canopy target of 20% as adopted by our Town's Council.

The Urban Forest Strategy Working Group (which comprises of the Vic Park Collective, Vic Park Trees and with assistance from Town officers) have undertaken a significant consultation process across sectors of the Town of Victoria Park’s community, industry, commercial and Town of Victoria Park administration to assist with the development of the Urban Forest Strategy.

What is happening now?

A working group consisting of representatives from the community, elected members and staff from the Town of Victoria Park is due to be formed in the coming months to progress this, again under a collaborative partnership approach.

The terms of reference and composition of this group are being worked through, with an expressions of interest advertising period to follow for community members wanting to be involved.

The group will then develop the detailed actions, budgets and responsibilities required to deliver the strategy.

How can I be involved or find out more information?
