There has been discussion recently regarding potential changes coming in the following local government areas (LGA) in relation to trees:


  • Bassendean
  • Bayswater
  • Victoria Park


Nothing is final yet, but part of the benefit of the relationships we have with local council planners is we are sometimes privy to information before it is made public.


All three of the LGAs above are considering implementing policies that relate to significant trees (likely three metres tall or greater) – not just on the verge (“council trees”) like previously, but trees on your land.


What do you need to do?


Likely nothing. If you don’t plan to develop your site or if you don’t have any significant trees on your site, then you have nothing to worry about. Although if either applies to you, you may wish to give us a call to discuss the potential impact of such changes in further detail.
