Community Bush Garden - Scarborough

Closed for comment 20 August 2019

Update: A partnership agreement between the City and the garden Committee has been signed and a draft design is now underway. It is hoped the garden will be operational by the next planting season (winter), subject to the approval of all relevant documents and designs.

Thank you for your feedback, consultation has concluded but updates will be available on this page as the project progresses.

The City of Stirling would like to hear your thoughts about developing a community-led bush garden on an area of underused land in Scarborough.

What is a community bush garden?

Community bush gardens are places where people come together to establish a native garden, to learn new skills and make new friends. The bush garden would be designed, run and used by the community and supported by the City of Stirling and Water Corporation.

The proposed site

The area of land is owned by the Water Corporation and often used as a walking thoroughfare. The site is primarily used as a sewage distribution station and this function would continue with the development of a bush garden.

Will the Scarborough Community Bush Garden definitely go ahead?

No, the community garden at the proposed site will be approved by Council and the Water Corporation only if community consultation shows sufficient support for the garden and all partners reach the necessary agreements.

To have your say please complete the submission form below by 19 August 2019.

Come along to a meet and greet information session at the proposed garden site:

Date: Saturday 10 August 2019

Time: 10am -11.30am

Location: 112 Brighton Road, Scarborough
