Tree Management and Street Trees

Consultation has concluded

Council would like your feedback on the Urban Tree Management Policy and Street Tree Master Plan.

Trees are one of Willoughby City’s great assets. The intention of the Urban Tree Management Policy is to confirm Council’s commitment to protecting and maintaining this asset. The policy intends to provide a rationale for decision making and consistency in the management approach.

The draft policy collates the various documents, policies and practices affecting trees in Willoughby City, into one location.  The intention is that this will facilitate easy community access to the relevant information.

Ultimately the comprehensive document will be composed of:

Volume 1:  Urban Tree Management Policy

Volume 2:  Tree & Vegetation Preservation Clause 5.9(2) from the WLEP 2012

Volume 3:  Street Tree Master Plan

Volume 4:  Natural Heritage Register

Each of the (4) volumes will be subject to change over time, as and when legislation is updated and community attitudes change. Volume 2 and 4 are not included as part of this exhibition as they have been previously adopted.
