Council meeting update - 14 September 2021
Tuesday 14 September, 2021
Here is an overview of outcomes from tonight’s Ordinary Meeting:
After 18 months of research, discussion and planning, Councillors tonight adopted the Tamworth Region Urban Street Tree Management Plan. During the plan’s public exhibition, Council received 25 submissions from members of the community which prompted some changes the final document. The plan will guide Council staff and the community on a number of areas about urban tree management which aims to help cool and green the region. A new webpage is being created on the Tamworth Regional Council website to provide resources and assist residents in choosing the right tree to plant out the front of their property. A social media campaign planned for the coming weeks will be the first step in raising community awareness of the plan.
The Tamworth community will be encouraged to take part in Water Night next month as part of National Water Week. It was among a number of initiatives highlighted in the Water Sustainability Six Monthly Report tabled tonight. Water Night challenges residents to go without taps, showers and running water from 12pm to 12am on October 21. The event, created by Smart Approved WaterMark, was first held in Tamworth region last year.
