In November 2019, 11 mature trees were transplanted to Dickson and Lyneham by an experienced arborist as part of the City Renewal Authority’s (Authority’s) first tree transplanting project.
In partnership with Transport Canberra and City Services, and Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development, this project demonstrates how trees can be protected as part of urban renewal and development.
While the City Renewal Precinct is the heart of Canberra, design excellence is at the heart of the City Precinct Renewal Program and the work of the Authority. It is through the application of high-quality design that we will achieve the urban renewal outcomes that will benefit Canberrans for decades to come.
I am an outsider looking in and intensely interested in how places make the most of their potential. I have just visited Canberra again after a five-year period and I noticed a buzz in the atmosphere. It feels as if there is more self-assurance and people are less willing to accept outsiders saying that ‘Canberra lacks energy'.
On 15 & 16 April 2020 we surprised city businesses with pots of flowers!
The flowers, which brighten the city’s public spaces, are usually offered to the community after each seasonal refresh. However due to COVID-19 restrictions it was not possible to arrange this time around.
