Lost Trees at Druitt Gardens - March 2014


Update June 2011

There has been some real progress in relation to the refurbishment of Druitt Gardens. Major external funding and Committee approval have been obtained subject to confirmation of additional internal funding. Work is planned to commence in September.

The outcomes from the public consultation have been published:

Over 80% of respondents favour: replacing the chain link fence boundary, the new lighting proposals, and the improvements to Library Lane;

Over 70% of respondents favour: improving the Library gardens, the spatial configuration proposals, the felling and replacing proposals;

Over 60% of respondents favour: the Master Plan proposals, the footpath network proposed, the proposed special features.

The main area of contention is the future of the Creedy path as between retention or rebuilding and the accommodations of cyclists. Opinion is evenly split over these issues.

The main priorities that respondents identified are: new improved paths, opening up the tree canopy, extending and improving wildlife areas and felling dead, dying and dangerous trees.

Of course finding the money to do anything remains a thorny issue.
