Currently they are linking Tanilba’s forested foreshore to Sunset Point with a new feeding and breeding strip of eucalypts as the old swamp mahogany trees are nearing their end of their life cycle.
The local Parks and Reserves committee has been notified as well as waterfront residents by a letterbox drop however an issue has come to surface with some residents.
A screen of trees, planted before the consultative process, had been completed which has angered some foreshore residents.
Positioned close together they effectively blocked residents’ water views.
Council has agreed to relocate the trees and more plantings will take place between the new amenities block and the western end of the reserve.
This will establish a corridor over the long treeless strip and link it with an existing forest near the boat ramp.
