The City’s Sustainable Sydney 2030 vision includes commitments to increase tree canopy cover by 50% by 2030, to green our City and improve the amenity of our streets. In 2011, Council adopted the City’s Street Tree Master Plan which identifies a range of in-road tree planting sites such as Morehead Street, Redfern.

A raised median on Morehead Street will present a valuable opportunity to increase tree canopy in the street as well as increasing safety by reducing vehicle speeds.
