Where is the replanting of trees?
Reading in last edition (476) of the completion of the Woy Woy Sports Precinct project has prompted my correspondence.
In the same edition, there was a separate article detailing how hot our Peninsula suburbs are, due to removal of trees and natural surfaces.
Another article outlined Council's commitment to re-greening.
When the precinct project began, the area was razed of all trees.
I watched and waited for any signs of new trees or gardens to be planted.
However, the area around the building is now pure concrete.
Am I missing something?
Where is the replanting of trees in lieu of trees being removed?
Was there no consideration given to shade provision for spectators and cars?
It seems that another hot spot has been created to add to our man-made hot suburb, even while greening the Coast is being promoted.
Woy Woy Oval is scheduled for regular maintenance and it would seem reasonable that a garden area and tree re-planting in the newly created area could be maintained as part of that.
