HAVE YOUR SAY – PORT VILA URBAN GREENING MASTERPLAN
Work is underway to develop a Greening Masterplan for parts of Port Vila, which includes the traffic corridors from the airport to the domestic wharf, as well as the Central Business District. The objective of the Greening Masterplan is to ensure Port Vila city retains a healthy and attractive urban environment into the future.
Private businesses are one of the main users of the city. The project is keen to get the views of business owners and private sector workers on greening outcomes for Port Vila through completion of a short 2-minute survey at this link. Please also share the survey link with staff. You can stay in touch with the project through the Port Vila Urban Greening Masterplan page on Facebook.
