In Umina Beach NSW on “Additions To Residence Deck...” at 78 Osborne Avenue, Umina Beach NSW 2257:

Can the owners plant some medium trees for shade when the extensions are finished? I can see this block has not one tree but is lucky neighbours have kept theirs.
The Peninsula has lost too many trees from villas and secondary dwellings causing (proven by Council) urban heat island effect - same for housing sub-divisions at Warnervale which are also 4 degrees hotter than areas that have retained trees. Would you live in a hot box/paying for expensive air-conditioning if you had a chance of living somewhere on our lovely coast or hinterland that has shade where birds are caroling?
