Recently, Gunnedah Shire Council planted garden beds in Brock’s Court as part of the Community Strategic Plan to create a vibrant CBD precinct.
Unfortunately, plant thieves struck on two occasions last week removing an estimated value of $150 worth of plants from the gardens.
“We are working hard to put in place collective aspirations of the community and council to beautify our parks and gardens and enhance our streetscapes,” Acting Director Infrastructure Services Edward Paas said.
“We know there are only one or two individuals involved and the rest of the community are proud of Gunnedah and their surroundings.
“We won’t be discouraged by this thoughtless incident and will continue to work towards the goals the community have identified – providing more beautified spaces for the community and visitors to enjoy.”
Council will be reviewing CCTV surveillance of the area.
If anyone has information regarding the incident, please contact Gunnedah Shire Council on (02) 6740 2100.
