Work completed

Throughout the consultation process, many people told us that they would like to see planting carried out in the Cones Road area during this year’s planting season (2022), if it could be done in a way that will not hinder the flood overflow function of the area.

The entire area cannot be replanted; however, we have found we were able to install smaller, deliberately located, nodes of low-height natives with a small number of well-maintained shade trees for the community's enjoyment.

Low-height dryland natives will fold over in a flood and, when contained to smaller nodes, will not hinder the flow capacity and function of the floodway.

Around 3,000 plants have been planted by staff, contractors and the community.

We’d like to thank those who came and supported the revegetation of this area and who have engaged with us throughout this process.
