Getting the balance right: Tree Preservation & Bushfire Prevention - Blackwood event

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Like us, you're probably keen to ensure that the balance is right, between trees and bushfire prevention.  Too much clearance can in fact make things worse.

The State Planning Commission is currently consulting on a Code Amendment to the Bushfire Hazards Overlay and it's important that they hear from as many people as possible.

Conservation SA has played a significant role in building community awareness on the need for better tree protections.  Part of the significant body of work produced over the last 4 years has been a landmark report, supported by the CFS and the Native Vegetation Council, on the intersection of tree protections , native vegetation and bushfire clearances.  You can access the report here.

This session, run by Conservation SA and presented by Tom Morrison and Joanna Wells who co-authored the report, will inform you about the Code Amendment, and take you through the submission writing process.

The session is set up as a BYO device session.  You'll be provided with a template to use (adapt) and by the end of the session, your contribution to the process will be ready to email in.  Come along, make your contribution to the democratic process and build community.
