Council is proposing to plant additional trees along Samantha Riley Drive and is inviting residents to have their say on the plans.
Council has obtained a $259,000 grant from the Greening Our City program through Local Government NSW and the Department of Planning and Environment to plant trees either side of Samantha Riley Drive between Brampton Drive and Glenhaven Road. The proposed plantings include Weeping Lilly Pilly, Water Gum and Lemon Scented Myrtle.
The exhibited draft plans also include extending the existing pathway network to include a full 1.5m or 2.5m footpath each side of Samantha Riley Drive between Brampton Drive and Foxall Road. This footpath work is not included in the current works under the Greening Our City grant, and will need to be funded by Council at a future date.
The proposed works can be found in the Samantha Riley Drive – Draft Streetscape Landscape Plan, which is now available for public viewing and comment until Friday the 17th of November here https://www.thehills.nsw.gov.au/Have-your-say-on
