The carpark has been designed to achieve the maximum retention and protection of native trees, particularly along Canterbury Road and Campbell Street. The carpark will require the removal of up to 6 pine trees along Campbell Street, and five other native trees with poor to fair health and structure (as per the Arborist report) from the site, subject to further design work.

Council is required to apply for a planning permit to remove the trees and is keen to ensure significant offset planting around the boundary of the carpark is achieved as part of the planned development of the site.

The specifics of this offset planting will be finalised as part of the planning process and will include a minimum of 8 new mature native canopy trees along Campbell Street. An additional 24 new native canopy trees will be planted along with 7500 native shrubs, grasses and ground covers to complement the landscape character of the reserve. .

In addition to this offset planting, significant landscaping improvements will also be completed on the adjoining 7350 sqm of open space, made up of VicTrack land and Council’s FJC Rogers Reserve.

During construction, tree protection zones will be in place as part of the contractor’s environmental management plan, which will be monitored by an independent arborist.

Vegetation Removal Plan:

  • Green circles - trees to be retained
  • Red circles - trees to be removed





Sustainability

Council's Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) for Council Buildings Policy will ensure that environmentally sustainable design is incorporated into this project, including:

  • Sustainably sourced building materials
  • LED lighting solutions
  • Facilitating resourceful use of waste
