About our bush regeneration program

Randwick City Council's bush regeneration program aims to:

  • Protect and manage all remnant vegetation in Council's care for biodiversity conservation.
  • Provide advice to other Council officers, Councillors, other landholders and the community regarding bushland and biodiversity.
  • Ensure Council complies with all legislation relating to Threatened Species, and all biodiversity related issues.
  • Oversee community education on biodiversity and conservation issues.

  • Plan and implement bush regeneration programs for all the reserves containing remnant indigenous vegetation.
  • Comment on any development applications that affect remnant indigenous vegetation.
  • Oversee community volunteer programs.
  • Plan and implement noxious and environmental weed control.
  • Plan and implement feral and pest animal control.
  • Develop educational programs and material.
