POINT LEANDER DRIVE VERGE PLANTING PROJECT
Stage 2 – Clarkson Street through to O’Brien Park
The Shire of Irwin in conjunction with the Tidy Towns Sustainability Committee will be undertaking stage 2 of the Point Leander Drive verge planting project in the coming weeks.
This project was identified in the Shire’s 2015 - 2020 Green Infrastructure Strategy and aims to beautify Point Leander Drive whilst improving the aesthetic appearance of the area. The project will provide the community with shaded footpaths, reduce pavement heat in the warmer months whilst also increasing social and recreational value to the area.
The project will include planting approximately 100 established trees along the western footpath from Clarkson Street through to O’Brien Park. The trees for this project have been specifically selected for their tolerance to the Midwest regions climate; being drought tolerant whilst also offering maximum shade through a wide umbrella canopy.
The Green Infrastructure Strategy is available from the Shire’s website or by contacting the Administration Office on 9927 0000.
For further information regarding this project please contact Mark Jones, Supervisor Operations on 9927 2268 or email email@example.com.
