Proposal for more trees on Chelsea Street, Redfern

In response to requests from local residents, we’re proposing to plant more trees on Chelsea Street, Redfern.

Project Status: Under review

Public consultation period to

What we’re doing

We propose to plant 9 trees within the roadway to place trees away from narrow footpaths and overhead wires. The tree species will be either a deciduous tree (Fraxinus pennsylvanica) or an evergreen tree (Waterhousia floribunda), depending on community feedback. These trees will provide shade and make the street more pleasant.

The additional trees will remove 5 to 6 parking spaces depending on the final design.

We also propose to amend the street tree master plan for trees planted in the footpath, as the current Blue berry ash have not performed as expected. The proposed tree species is Tristaniopsis laurina ‘Luscious’ (water gum).
