You’re invited to help shape the future of Melbourne’s iconic parks, trees and open spaces.

Our urban trees are under immense stress from more than a decade of drought, water restrictions, periods of extreme heat, attack from pests and diseases, as well as age. The City of Melbourne has released two draft plans: the draft Urban Forest Strategy and draft Open Space Strategy, to ensure healthier, greener and more resilient landscapes and open spaces over the next 100 years.

To ensure their success, the City of Melbourne wants to know what you see as important, both for the city and in your local area.

Consultation is open until 29 February 2012. Find out more and get involved in the conversation at Melbourne’s Urban Forest and Open Space Strategy.
