25.5.1 Purpose

​​​​​a) Landscaping provides a range of aesthetic, functional and ecological opportunities for environmental enhancement. This chapter includes standards for screening activities and contributing to the amenity of the streetscape. Landscaping in this context is intended to soften hard surfaces and bleak areas, reduce visual impacts and provide visual unity. The standards also recognise that landscaping can contribute towards improved ecology.​
