Livingstone Shire Council is currently looking at important vegetation in our region.

While the Livingstone Coast stretching for some 300 kilometres and covering many land types, Council’s primary focus is on identifying notable/significant vegetation on Council controlled land in our region, with the intention to build a register and possible protection systems in the future.

Currently a number of trees located in the Livingstone Shire are recorded on the Heritage Register including:

• Trees at Bell Park

• Trees associated with the Yeppoon War Memorial

• Joskeleigh Cemetery

• There are also two Weeping Figs located in Normanby Street, recorded on the National Trust of Australia Register of Significant Trees http://www.trusttrees.org.au/#

Council is interested in the community’s input from the outset of this project. In this survey, we would like to understand what notable vegetation of Livingstone you value, why it’s important to you and how you believe Council should address the management of this vegetation.

Once the initial survey is complete, Council will review the responses with a view to determining options for addressing notable vegetation, at which point in time the public will have other opportunities to provide input on specific notable vegetation.
