Strattons Lane Update

Strattons Lane Project
Stratton’s Lane is a well used path between Herbert St and Tanti Ave that provides access across Tanti Creek.
This project involves planting out portions of the lawn along the lane with native grasses and forbs.  This will improve the appearance of the lane and may also act as an anti-graffiti measure.  Mulch has been delivered on the Herbert St side.  Mulching and planting will be undertaken as soon as Covid-19 measures allow.
