5.3.3.1.4 Planting

View Image

5.3.3.1.4.1 Street trees

(1) Street trees are permitted in all streets within the City Centre as determined on a site-by-site basis.
(2) Table 5.3.3.1.4.3A sets out the approved street tree species for use on the various streets within the City Centre.
(3) Street trees are to be planted with 1.6m x 1.6m tree grates where footway width permits.
(4) Elsewhere, 1.615m long x 1.21m tree grates are to be used, as per Figure 5.3.3.1.4a.
(5) The layout of street trees is as follows:
(a) a mix of species, in a single row at the rear of kerb;
(b) to be planted as singles and in pairs or clusters.
(6) Trees are planted in garden beds or tree grates.
(7) All tree centrelines are 750mm from the nominal face of the kerb and a minimum of 600mm from the edges of the pavement.
(8) Streets in the City Centre include:
(a) a mix of tree species laid out in an informal manner with clusters of trees;
(b) medium and small crown trees to be planted at minimum 2m spacing, if within garden beds, or minimum 6m spacing outside of garden beds;
(c) large crown feature trees to be planted at minimum 10m centres.

5.3.3.1.4.2 Traffic islands

(1) There are a number of locations in the City Centre where there are large traffic islands populated by very well-established trees – including figs and jacarandas.
(2) Table 5.3.3.1.4.3B provides a list of street tree species for traffic islands.

5.3.3.1.4.3 Garden beds

The high volume of pedestrian traffic makes the application of garden beds unsuitable in the City Centre.
