The community is invited to have a say on the Draft Albert Park Revegetation Plan.
At its meeting on September 5 Council voted to release the draft plan for community feedback.
The draft plan provides guidance on areas suitable for revegetation, taking into consideration all users of the park, and makes planting recommendations.
It seeks to provide improved ecological outcomes for the park and maintain and enhance social and recreational outcomes for park users.
The benefits of increasing native vegetation with the park include:
- increased cooling;
- mitigation of the urban heat island effect;
- improved amenity;
- improved air quality;
- provision of refuge for wildlife to move safely within an urban environment;
- creation of wildlife habitat, and,
- intercepted stormwater run-off.
