You talked and we listened! We’ve introduced some changes to our Tree Bylaw (No. 7799) that came into effect on November 20th. These changes are part of our initiative to improve our bylaws.
Here are some highlights:
- Reduced tree permit fees and securities for resident applicants (some restrictions apply)
- Release of 40% of replacement tree securities at planting
- City arborist inspection of tree protection barriers for resident applicants with a fee (some restrictions apply)
- Incentives to modify the building plans to keep a protected tree
We’ll be going into more detail on these changes in the coming weeks so stay tuned! For more information, please visit www.newwestcity.ca/trees.
