Council has undertaken a review of the current Tree Preservation Controls, comparing these to the controls against nine comparable Councils and the NSW Housing Code.

Council is now proposing to amend its Tree Preservation Controls and implement a 6 – 12 month trial of a ‘fast track system’ for approval of trees that fit the specific categories between the current and draft controls.
