Significant Trees

Significant Trees…

Significant trees on the current St Clair Reserve area will be swapped. Of these 23 trees, 16 are healthy and the other 7 are in declining health and/or poor structure. The Land Management Corporation (LMC) has provided a written undertaking of its intention to retain these trees.

LMC will work with Council and the community on a master plan for the site that will retain as many trees as possible.

In addition, the Joint Venture developer have indicated that they will plant more than 2,000 street trees and many more in the 17 hectare open space area throughout the former racecourse, former Sheridan/Actil factory site and surrounds, which will add significantly to the green amenity of the area.

Contamination…

There was some contamination on the former Sheridan/Actil factory site at Woodville however the site has now been remediated and an Environment Protection Authority (EPA) accredited Environmental Auditor is now in the process of finalising a certification confirming the safe use of the site for playing field and open space purposes. Before the land swap proceeds Council must receive the Environmental Auditors sign off.
