Green Streets Program

The Green Streets Program is a collaboration between Council and the community to green residential streets through urban design solutions and education.

A 'green street', as defined for this program, is a street that incorporates well designed placement of trees and vegetation. Where the possibility of street redesign is possible, a 'green street' can also include:

  • passive storm water filtration solutions
  • improved walking and cycling outcomes
  • planting of understory to improve biodiversity outcomes where feasible

A well-designed green street can

  • cool the environment
  • improve streetscape amenity and walkability
  • enhance urban biodiversity and provide linkages between pockets of biodiverse areas
  • showcase how the city can better adapt to climate change
  • increase awareness, knowledge and stewardship about the importance of urban greening within the community
  • reduce storm water flows and pollutant levels where installation of water sensitive urban design allows
