At the Council Meeting this week, there was discussion about the loss of trees resulting from the Goodwood Rail Junction Project. There were a lot of tress lost. Through negotiations, the State Government Transport Department (DPTI) has agreed to funding offset planting ie. planting new trees to replace those removed.
The Council Administration has identified 64 potential new planting locations for trees that will have the potential to reach Regulated/Significant size at maturity. Many of the trees will be planted in areas adjacent to the rail line. Some will be planted further afield in our parks eg. Souter, Page, Orphanage, Dora Guild, Princess Margaret, Kings Park, Howard Florey, Goodwood Community Centre, ...
The planting will occur over coming months and be completed this planting season.
