I think too much of this is going on for the sake of convenience. A number of trees have recently been sacrificed for the convenience of developers on another greenhill road building site (on the east side Joslin street corner). If we keep letting this happen, the ‘leafy’ suburbs are going to be completely denuded and changed forever. Why does this regulated tree need to be removed. How does this count as community consultation?
From Emma Miller to local councillor Jennie Boisvert
Hi, this has been applied for under Section 54A of the act that regulates the removal of trees. Council can not control who applies to remove tree or when they choose to do so. However, the do choose, within the bounds of the Act, if they can be legally removed or not. The Act allows for any tree, other than a eucalypt, to be removed if they are closer than 10m to a building of value, if they are causing significant damage to a building or if the tree is deemed to be unsafe. Unfortunately, this is deemed by the state government and not council. Regards, Jennie
