Thank you to all who completed the survey. This consultation is now closed while officers consider feedback.

Following the receipt of a petition on 28 October, 2021 to replace five newly planted trees with an alternative species (Algerian Oak or Pin Oak), Council resolved at the Council Meeting on 12 April 2022 to:

Request for consultation to occur with Filson Street residents regarding a proposed change in tree species and streetscape character, ensuring the current nominated species, and two other highly suitable and climate resilient choices, are provided to residents via the process outlined within Council’s Tree Management Plan.

Brush Box (Lophostemon confertus) is the current nominated species for Filson Street and is the dominant tree species with 27 trees in naturestrips in good and healthy condition.

We would like your help to nominate a tree species for your street, so we have provided you with three suitable, climate resilient, high performing urban street trees for your consideration. Please note, an alternative choice from the current nominated species will alter the landscape character of the street and delay a consistent streetscape for up to 50 years as trees will only be replaced at the end of their safe useful life.

Have your say!
