The Upper Scroggy Sustainable Neighbourhood

 

The Upper Scroggy Sustainable Neighbourhood is so successful that many of the neighbours in the vicinity of the Upper Scroggy Stream catchment in Fairmount and Pleasant Roads, Roland Hill and Tomo Street in Titirangi have become involved with the neighbourhood project.

Weeds have been replaced with natives along stretches of the Upper Scroggy Stream as it flows through their properties, with hundreds more natives to be planted this season. In addition to stream restoration to increase bio-diversity and prevent erosion, the vision is to create neighbourhood cohesiveness through the process of restoring Scroggy Stream.

Other neighbourhood goals are to create a green corridor to the Whau River, increase native bird populations and to establish fruit trees and a community garden.

The Upper Scroggy Stream Sustainable Neighbourhood is under the very capable coordination of Karen Mann Ph: 09 817 1263
