Consultation has concluded

The Draft Revegetation Strategy provides a plan for revegetation across Casey on both public and private land over the coming five years.

Past land management practices and significant urban growth has resulted in the loss of vital vegetation across the City of Casey, and currently there is less than 7per cent native vegetation (plants) left across the municipality, This has resulted in the loss of habitat for native fauna including the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot, and also impacts upon residents’ ability to connect with the natural environment and enjoy green spaces in and around their community.

The aim of the strategy is to create a resilient and healthy urban forest and green spaces across the city for the community to enjoy, and also provide important habitat areas for indigenous plants and animals. The plan includes targets for planting 20,000 trees in the first year, and developing initiatives to protect and enhance existing remnant vegetation.

Initiatives contained it the strategy consider Council-owned land where revegetation could be undertaken as well as programs to encourage the community to revegetate private properties.

    What we heard about the Draft Revegetation Strategy

    Thank-you for taking the time to provide feedback on the draft Revegetation Strategy. Your feedback will shape the final revegetation strategy.

    Below is a snapshot of what we heard and how we can incorporate your feedback and what Council is doing to implement your suggestions.

    · External stakeholders including neighbouring Councils will be listed as a key stakeholder in the final Revegetation Strategy

    · Targets will reflect the minimum number of trees to be planted, creating the flexibility to reach and exceed our planting numbers

    · Examples of how many trees planted in previous years and the number of volunteers engaged will be added to provide context.

    · Look at buffers around suggested corridors and research future potential corridors to strengthen the protection of these vital pieces of connected habitat

    · Council’s Friends Group network recently discussed how to improve the promotion and of environmental volunteer groups and their events.
