Admin have just confirmed the much awaited tree replacement along Canterbury Terrace Black Forest and Parker Terrace Clarence Park is scheduled for the next few weeks.
It has been determined that the same tree will be used on both sides of the rail corridor. It is the Pyrus calleryana ‘Chanticleer’ as per the picture below. I have been advised that these trees will be 3.0 m high when planted which is fantastic news. There will also be low level vegetation.
The trees in Parker Terrace will located such that we will create more carparks than there used to be with bollards located to protect the trees. This will result in paving repairs being undertaken along Parker as well.
As I expect you already aware there will be no footpath and bike path along the fence of the rail corridor in Canterbury. I understand the trees in Canterbury will be planted opposite those in Parker.
