Council manages street tree clearance on public roads, and maintains the following clearances:
- Footpath/shared path: 2.5m
- Local road: 4.5m
Council takes a risk-based approach to determining street tree clearance requirements based on traffic needs and consequences to the streetscape. Council may implement separate traffic controls, such as warning markers or low-clearance warning signs, where desired clearance cannot be attained. For more information, please see the Road Management Plan.
