Inverloch Recreation Reserve Tree Limb Removal – Immediate Works

Council+will+remove+dangerous+overhanging+limbs+from+trees+at++Inverloch+Recreation+Reserve

In the past week Bass Coast Shire Council has received reports of tree limb failure of the trees surrounding the Inverloch Recreation Reserve.

The Reserve is not Council owned or managed but Council’s arborists attended the Reserve earlier this week to inspect and assess those limbs that overhang the pedestrian footpath and school crossing outside the Reserve.

As a result, Council will perform immediate maintenance works along a section of Bayview Avenue to remove those overhanging limbs deemed to be a public safety risk. The section of Bayview Avenue is from the intersection of Reilly Street to just west of the bus shelter outside the Inverloch Police Station.

These immediate works are to be completed between Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 February. Council will attempt to limit the disruption to the area, including the Inverloch Primary School, during this time and thanks the community in advance for their understanding.

In late February, the 46 trees surrounding the Inverloch Recreation Reserve will be removed over a four week period. The project has been funded through the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and is being managed by the Inverloch Recreation Reserve Committee of Management.
