And, from little things big things grow..

by brucemoon,

Believe it or not, this is a picture of Boyd Family Park at West Tweed.

Until recently, there were trees and grass. But, a stormwater upgrade meant Council had to remove the vegetation. In it's place is gravel.

With a frontage onto busy Gollan Drive and now with a hard surface, the park makes an ideal site for car owners seeking to sell their vehicles.

Who knows, one day Council might place line marking and charge prospective vendors to place their car.

Facetiousness aside, Council has no policy regarding revegetation following engineering works.

Ideally, Council will develop a policy whereby it's various departments will be required to include a revegetation budget in any works undertaken. And, the revegetation outcome will also be according to a yet to be developed Council policy.

This example shows the impact of inadequate policy in relation to the urban landscape. Hopefully, policy development to address the inadequacy will allow the growth of (re)vegetation in the Tweed.

Raising the importance of scenic urban areas and how vegetation contributes to highly valued urban places and views. The Scenic Landscape Strategy will seek to explore the range of factors that may result in vegetation loss, including Council’s role, and consider options available to preserve, mitigate or enhance high-quality scenic landscapes.
