Council to livestream Wednesday's meeting

The MidCoast Council draft greening strategy, which identifies a range of actions to help manage and enhance the extent of vegetation across the LGA will be discussed at tomorrow's council strategic May monthly meeting.

The meeting, on Wednesday, May 12, will be livestreamed from 2pm for members of the community who cannot attend.

However, while members of the community can now to attend in person, social distancing requirements means numbers are capped at 25 in line with the Public Health Order and two square metre rule.

Also on the agenda is a draft vegetation management policy, which proposes a highly targeted approach to vegetation management across the entire region.

Under the proposal, the policy would be limited to areas where existing trees and vegetation contribute significant ecological values, or landscape and amenity, and the existing Tree Preservation Order in place in the Great Lakes region would be removed.

If endorsed by councillors, both the draft greening strategy and draft vegetation management policy will be placed on public exhibition for feedback.
