Thanks for your feedback. This consultation has now closed and we are reviewing your feedback.

Council is reviewing its existing Nature Strip Guidelines, which were developed in 2013, to support this growing community interest. We’ve spent time developing new draft Nature Strip Guidelines that aim to provide clear directions on how residents and businesses can safely garden on our nature strips.

From December 2021 to February 13, 2022, we asked for your thoughts on the draft Nature Strip Guidelines.

We're currently reviewing and considering all the information collected to date.

The next steps are:

  • New draft Nature Strip Guidelines will be prepared, considering the community consultation data  
  • In-person community consultation will occur on these new draft guidelines in May/June
  • Feedback will be considered, and the draft finalised.
  • Draft NSG will go to an open Council meeting for consideration by Councillors. Community can register to speak at this meeting. 

Thank you for your input so far with the development of the draft Nature Strip Guidelines development.

View Q&A session recordings

We heard from some in our community that they’d like the opportunity to meet the project team and ask questions in person for this consultation. Due to rising COVID-19 cases in Victoria, we ran two interactive Q&A sessions online rather than face-to-face. Residents were able to meet the project team and ask them questions during the sessions.

You can watch a recording of the the interactive Q&A session held on Saturday 5 February 10 am to 12 noon using this link.
