    Greening Our City

    Growing our Urban Forest

    Across the CBD from Wellington Square through the East End and along Roe Street, we’re incorporating green into all our projects. Streets, parks and your public spaces are being revitalised with more trees, plants and shrubs, developing beautiful, shady spaces that deliver benefits for city liveability.

Sustainability is one of our strategic pillars

There are plenty of exciting plans in the pipeline to continue making our City even more sustainable. Although we’re well on the way (our projects speak for themselves) it’s a long and busy road. There’s so much more we can all do together.
