Urban Forest Action Plan

What is the Urban Forest Action Plan?

Ballarat's Urban Forest is the sum of all urban vegetation across the municipality, including parks, gardens, streets, roadsides, private yards, creek corridors, wetlands and recreation spaces.
It plays an important role in the future livability, resilience and sustainability of our city.

A key action of Today, Tomorrow, Together : The Ballarat Strategy is the development of an Urban Forest Action Plan to help guide the protection and enhancement of our urban trees.



In 2017, the City of Ballarat released Our Living City - a discussion paper on greening Ballarat through an urban forest approach.
The paper highlighted key issues facing Ballarat's urban forest and outlined nine key priorities in managing and enhancing the future urban forest.

More than 150 people provided feedback on the discussion paper which was collated to help to inform the development of the Draft Urban Forest Action Plan.

You now have the chance to read the Draft Urban Forest Action Plan and let us know your thoughts.
