Plans for minor upgrade to Plantation Point Tuross Head on exhibition


Eurobodalla Shire Council is planning some minor upgrades to the Plantation Point Memorial Gardens in Tuross Head.

The gardens are used regularly for picnics and weddings and are the location for the annual Anzac Day Dawn Service in Tuross Head.

Maintained by the Tuross Head Memorial Gardens Committee in partnership with Council, committee members have asked council to make a few improvements to the gardens as Anzac Day approaches.

The proposed upgrades will see the lawn and tree garden extended back to Stoneys Beach car park to create an inviting walkway into the gardens. Three picnic table settings and three seats will also be replaced.

A section of the embankment will be backfilled to enlarge the area where the horses stand during the Anzac Day Service.

Council is also asking the community to consider the optional removal of a self-seeded Norfolk Pine on the shoreline to reinstate the integrity of the original Norfolk pine plantation.

Mayor Liz Innes said the gardens committee has done a superb job of maintaining the gardens for several decades.

"We're really pleased to be able to propose these improvements to the gardens and we look forward to hearing from the community about our plans, and to seeing the gardens looking better than ever.”

The plans are on display at the entry to the gardens and are also available at www.esc.nsw.gov.au under Projects and Exhibitions and online at the following links: Media Release Editors Note - The plans are also readily accessible at the following links Overall Plan of proposed works Detail design of Proposed park benches and picnic tables Related article - LET THE TREE LIVE
