ACT's green property incentive

July 12, 2012

Upon buying a property in the Australian Capital Territory home buyers will receive a selection of flora to adorn their dwelling with.

Under the ACT's Plant Issue Scheme people buying land blocks in the territory are entitled to more than $200 worth of plants to place around their new property.

Chief minister and minister for territory and municipal services Katy Gallagher said almost 17,000 plants had been provided to 996 new landholders in the last financial year.

"With the ACT's growing population spreading into new suburbs such as Bonner and Casey, as well as the new Molonglo suburbs such as Wright, we want to encourage new landowners to maintain Canberra's scenic beauty and reputation as the Bush Capital," Ms Gallagher said.

"Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this initiative to beautify their new home and suburb."

The scheme is available to new property owners of residential blocks and residents are eligible for the free plants any time up to two years from the land purchase.

Plants are available from the Yarralumula Nursery Garden Centre, and people can choose from more than 800 species of both Australian natives and exotics.
