Better Urban Forest Planning Guideline

Published: Tuesday, 13 November 2018 at 11:08:26 AM

On 8 November (World Town Planning Day), the Western Australian Planning Commission, the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage and the Western Australian Local Government Association launched the Better Urban Forest Planning Guideline, to assist Local Governments in the strategic planning of their urban canopy.

The development of the guideline is aimed at supporting these efforts and promoting best practice in urban tree canopy management. The document provides information, tools and case studies, and a toolbox of statutory and strategic planning instruments and guidance to promote the tree retention and planting.
