The Urban Forest Precinct Plans are the implementation guidelines that underpin our Urban Forest Strategy. The precinct plans outline what is going to be planted where, when and why over the next ten years. Fundamental to the success of these strategies is community participation. We want to hear your thoughts on the urban forest in your neighbourhood to help us plan our future forest.

The Urban Forest Precinct Plans are being renewed for each of our 10 urban forest precincts over the next four years. We will be engaging first with East Melbourne, Central Business District (CBD), South Yarra and Carlton in early 2023.

Have your say by registering for one of the expert-led workshops happening in your neighborhood. An online survey will also be available in the coming weeks.
