Byron Council staff say the succession plan involves staged removal and replacement of the trees, and is on exhibition until July 14. The plans are to replace five mature leopard trees and two Bangalow palms on the southern side of Byron Street and two liquidambar trees on the eastern side of Station Street. 

‘Continuing hazards to pedestrians and recurring maintenance costs require a more sustainable strategy,’ says Malcolm Robertson, Manager Open Space and Facilities. For more info, visit the Your Say page on Byron Council’s website.
