Residents may notice a change to the look of some street trees, with this year’s pruning underway to clear branches from electrical lines as part of our biennial maintenance program.

Our pruning contractor adheres to the directions of Victoria’s energy regulatory body, Energy Safe Victoria, in meeting the requirements of the Electricity Safety (Electric Line Clearance) Regulations 2015. The amount of pruning around electrical lines is mandated by this legislation, which Council needs to comply with for community safety.

We are proud of our renowned street trees and know they provide great amenity and environmental values for the community.
