Bridport Foreshore Maintenance Update

Council and Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (Crown Land) have in principle agreement in regards to future maintenance of the Bridport foreshore. Part of this agreement includes Council mowing and maintaining the foreshore, including the removal of dead or dangerous trees and various other weed species.

Parks advised that the fallen Casuarinas (she-oaks) that are closer to the high tide mark and that are on the embankment pose no risk or safety issue and should remain to decay naturally.

Council will also be taking proactive measures to institute a planting program to ensure that there is a generational replacement of mature native trees for habitat and amenity.
