Rylandes Drive Streetscape Renewal

Consultation has concluded

Background

Rylandes Drive is an important gateway to Gladstone Park and has been selected as a priority for streetscape renewal with the aim to provide greater sense of arrival and help to improve the Gladstone Park neighbourhood.

The proposed works are broken into two stages with stage 1 to commence this year and stage 2 to be completed in following years:

Streetscape renewal stages

Stage 1: Rylandes Drive centre median

  • Removing existing centre median trees, stripping grassed areas and soil preparation.
  • Replacement planting of a single species of large canopy feature trees as either evergreen or deciduous (leafless in Winter) but, not both types.
  • Low feature planting ground covers at points along the centre median at locations to be determined.

These works are proposed to be completed during 2021 - 2022 planting season.

Stage 2: Rylandes Drive nature strips

  • Staged replacement of nature strip trees with small ornamental trees as either evergreen or deciduous

Rylandes Drive Gateway Park planting, and improvement works, and infill tree planting will be completed during 2022 - 2023 planting season.

How to participate

Council was asking what type of trees the community would like in Rylandes Drive's centre median and nature strips. The choice of trees is guided by Council’s goals in relation to urban cooling and air and water purification, and the Street and Reserve Tree Policy. Council invited you to have your say by 6 September 2021.
