Matters On Exhibition

Amended Tree Management Policy

Trees are important elements that transform the amenity and aesthetics of the area, while providing environmental, cultural and economic benefits to the community. In the long term, trees create a sense of place and enhance the streetscape.

On 24 February 2015, Council adopted the Tree Management Policy to assist various stakeholders in making informed decisions regarding tree selection and management throughout the LGA (both private and public land). The Tree Management Policy has now been reviewed and written submissions are welcome from the public.

The reviewed Tree Management Policy can viewed here and hard copies are also available at:

  • Council’s Administration Building, 70 Central Avenue, Oran Park; and
  • Camden, Narellan and Oran Park Libraries.

Written submissions should be addressed to the General Manager and received by Council no later than close of business on Friday 17 January 2020 via email or PO Box 183, Camden NSW 2570.
