Maintenance of the site continues in accordance with all Council permits and regulations, while at the same time meeting all legal obligations such as workplace health and safety.
Our tree management program includes an annual assessment of the health and structural integrity of all trees on the site. We engage qualified, independent arborists to assess which trees are at risk of dropping limbs over the next 12 months. It’s important for the safety of people and neighbouring properties as well as for staff and any contractors who are maintaining the site. In recent months we have had an unusual number of high wind-storm events and tree branches have fallen on and around neighbouring properties.
To keep the site safe, tree maintenance will be required for trees identified requiring work. Tree maintenance works only includes pruning and is scheduled to commence 13/08/21 are exempt from requiring a permit under the Kingston Planning Scheme and local laws. These works will be undertaken in accordance with Australian Standard 4373-2007.
Separately, we have lodged applications for tree works that require a permit under the local law or the Planning Scheme. Any works requiring a permit, will be undertaken strictly in accordance with the conditions of any permits and will only take place once an approved permit is received. Once approved, directly affected neighbours will be notified prior to the commencement of permitted tree works in their vicinity.
