Update on tree of significance - Norfolk Island Pine tree

We are hoping that this beautiful 35 year old tree of significance gets to live out its natural life span and continue to provide shelter for local wildlife and help keep the street cool and green.

Thank you Darebin Council for your efforts so far.

A big thank you to planning alerts and Open Australia. Without the alert, we would never known about this application until the bulldozers rocked up.

Here are some of the recommendations I have made to Darebin Council:

1. Policy/ law change, requiring site inspection by Darebin council to check for trees of significance on property before planning approval for Vic Smart planning applications.

2. Owners/ planning permit company also required to sign a stat dec declaring no trees of significance on property or declaring that trees of significant are noted and drawn on plans and docs.

3. Public notice should be required for all Vic Smart applications to inform neighbourhood so that residents can raise concerns about potential destruction of trees of significance in the redevelopment process.

4. Communication strategy raising awareness of Darebin tree policy- to residents as well as tree lopping companies, arborists and soil testing companies etc.
