Submission on the draft Wollondilly Tree Management Policy
UDIA supports the intent and objectives of the Policy, and both State and Local governments’ vision for a greener Western Sydney. However, we have concerns with some aspects of the Policy and make the following recommendations:
- Recommendation 1: Review the design guidelines, particularly on street tree location in verges.
- Recommendation 2: Remove the prohibition in Part 4.6 on removing trees where they may cause damage to property (both Council and private property) and solar panels among other matters.
- Recommendation 3: Ensure consistency with the Exempt an Complying Provisions of the Codes SEPP 2008 and Wollondilly LEP.
