Planting on Nature Strip

Fraser Coast Regional Council supports the greening and beautification of eligible nature strips, with updates to Local Laws aimed at simplifying the process and minimising wait times.

New self‐assessable criteria have been developed to assist residents in planning a nature strip garden, assessing the eligibility of the garden, and lodging the details with Council.

Please read through the guidelines below, follow all the steps ensuring that you meet all criteria and return to Council.

No approval is required if all criteria are met, but residents must complete the checklist at the end of the guidelines and submit it to Council before they begin work. 

Nature Strip Garden Guidelines

The Fraser Coast Greening Guide provides handy advice on choosing and growing native plants, including for nature strips.

Please note: You must not plant any trees on your nature strip, or prune, damage or interfere with any existing trees, or tree roots.

Requests for street tree planting can be made to Council and will be considered for inclusion in the capital tree planting program. Read more here - Street Trees
