Landscaping & Development

Landscaping and garden design can improve your home’s amenity, thermal performance, property value, and reduce your environmental footprint.

The Planning and Design Code includes policies to encourage the retention of existing trees and outlines the minimum tree planting and soft landscaping requirements in most residential developments.

This section aims to support developers, applicants, planning professionals and new homeowners to achieve better greening outcomes at the different planning and design stages. It also provides information and resources for greening existing gardens and council verges.
