About this organisation

The Infrstaructure Management Department of Council is responsible for the asset planning of a broad range of infrastructure and includes all of the landscapes, trees, streetscapes, water features that supply our community with a level of service related to sport, recreation, events & social activities.

Why we support the vision

Trees supply a connection to our environment which is so very important for the ongoing health and well being of all who work, reside or recreate in it. More than ever before we need to give back to nature and increase the quantity of our tree assets for so many benefits that have been already identified.

The City of Adelaide is proud to be offering $200,000 in the Green City Grant Program that encourages residents, businesses and property owners to create a pocket of greenery that adds to their street appeal and helps make the city’s streets and public spaces more attractive and enjoyable.

Funding is available to cover up to half of the cost of each greening project. Grants start at $500 for residents and $1,000 for business and building owners, up to a maximum grant of $10,000 in matched funding.
Greening projects that enhance the presentation of a property need to be visible from a street or other public place and can include:

• Living walls
• Green facades
• Vertical gardens
• Window boxes
• Greenery that spills over balconies
• Vines and climbers on verandahs or other structures
• Upgrades to existing verge gardens

Grants can be used for both small and large scale projects that help make the city a greener, cooler and more attractive place to live and work. The Green City Grant Program is also contributing to the delivery of one of the City of Adelaide’s key strategic goals of increasing the amount of green space and greenery in the built-up areas of the city by 100,000 square metres by 2020.
