Peter/Gloria Planting 07Oct2012
Tuesday, 09 October 2012

400 flowering shrubs and small trees, view-lines protected, access preserved. Probably will take about 12 months before the planting looks significant.

Eight participants - Jonathan, Joan, Lee, Len, Jenny, Jochen and Maurice braved the weather to clear weeds, dig holes, plant, mulch and fence site over the weekend. June cooked lunch which was heartily enjoyed.

Sign donated by Geoff Cross of Cross Signs (a Tambo Bluff resident) - many thanks Geoff.

May 2012 Planting
Thursday, 31 May 2012

Lark (north) planting Stage 1 - plants are in.
Saturday, 24 September 2011

Thanks Jonathan, Joan and Maurice for your hard work. Approx. 320 plants, 20 species.

TBLC plan to cover this planting with bird netting as a trial deterrent to top-browsing animals like rabbits and wallabies while the plants establish and grow above the guards. The netting may also provide some protection from the harsh summer sun.

Four short connecting streets, Quail, Lark, Finch and Wren were discontinued under Councilís 2004 Development Plan (Meinhardt, 2005). This plan formed the basis for Councilís C53 Planning Scheme Amendment that established the present sub-division and Public Open Space. The Planning Panel also recommended establishment of habitat corridors to improve wildlife access between the lakes, wetlands and adjoining habitat which is threatened by increasing development pressure on the natural environment, particularly in coastal areas. The closed streets can become a habitat corridor and were identified as part of the proposed walking track system for Tambo Bluff which was initially included in the Special Charge Scheme but later dropped due to funding issues. It is hoped this small section can be expanded in the future.

The species list has been designed so that the planting becomes a wildlife refuge and corridor while also being a pleasant garden walk for the nearby community.
