Wingecarribee Shire Council is seeking comment from residents after councillors unanimously endorsed a draft Urban Tree Policy for public exhibition at Wednesday evening’s Ordinary Council Meeting.
The draft policy provides strategic direction and management of Council controlled trees and will be on public exhibition until 30 March 2018.
During this period residents are invited to make submissions on Council’s proposed position on the management of urban trees.
Councillors also resolved to forward copies of the draft policy to Endeavour Energy, local nurseries and service agencies asking for their input.
Submissions can be made in writing addressed to the General Manager, Wingecarribee Shire Council, PO Box 141 Moss Vale 2577 or alternatively by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and should include the reference WSC 900/2 and be marked ‘Submission to Draft Urban Tree Policy’.
Submissions and feedback close at 4.30pm on Friday 30 March 2018.
Following the close of the exhibition period, all responses will be collated and included in a final report to be presented to Council.
