  •  To understand the Community needs and act as a conduit between Council and the Community
  •  To associate with and consult with community groups in relation to open space
  •  To assist Council in identifying opportunities to work in partnership with other authorities and community groups to achieve high quality open spaces and places through planting programs
  •  To understand and further our relationship with the Dja Dja Wurrung as the traditional custodians of this Country and use their unique relationship and skills in managing this Country
  •  To identify the role public place planting has in responding to climate change.

The Public Places Tree Advisory Committee will meet quarterly.
