Seasonal Gardens and Planter Boxes

Meeting: Parks and Recreation Committee

Meeting date: 10 December 2020

Raised by: Councillor Ewin

Question:  The gardens and planter boxes are a colourful feature around the city, and are changed seasonally.   

I’m interested in how this fits in with our sustainability and climate action strategies, as well as the community vision document. 

Could the Director please provide a response as to: 

a) The rationale behind changing the gardens and planters seasonally;

b) How we could design our city garden spaces to better support native flora and fauna biodiversity;

c) The financial implications of continuing as we are, as opposed to switching to permanently installed garden beds and/or planter boxes?
