RESIDENTS of Bega’s Glebe area are invited to participate in a tree planting at the Glebe Reserve in Bunyarra Drive this week.
The working bee will be held on Friday (October 10) from 10am and represents the start of a series of improvements in the reserve.
Bega Valley Shire Council has written to all residents of the Glebe area inviting them to the working bee and advising them of some of its proposed management actions.
It has also invited them to comment on a draft landscape concept plan for the reserve.
Council’s manager of urban design and reserve planning, Mark Canaider, said Glebe Reserve was a key use area for local residents, particularly children.
He said the improvements proposed in council’s draft landscape concept plan were designed to complement existing recreational opportunities and the area’s amenity.
The proposed improvements include the provision of garden beds containing local indigenous plant species, the relocation and long-term replacement of playground equipment and the provision of open space for more active recreations.
Some of the other planned improvements include the provision of shade trees and the provision of a gravel footpath network throughout the park for bikes.
There are also plans for new picnic tables and a barbecue area.
Mr Canaider said the improvements would be carried out over time, subject to funding availability.
The Department of the Housing already had contributed some funding towards the project and he thanked them for their assistance.
Mr Canaider urged Glebe residents to comment on the concept plan and to get involved in the planting on Friday.
The trees have been donated through a Country Energy grant fund and two local environmental workers, Lisa Roberts and Peter Charlton, from ‘Inflorescence’.
There will be free morning tea from 10am and face painting for the children.
Comments on the draft concept plan will accepted up until the close of business on Friday, October 17.
