Moves to create a unique environmental project in Frankston have been given the green light.

Councillors have voted to spend $54,000on plans for a ‘green wall’ at the Civic Centre.

The vegetation wall may be movable so it could be transported to other buildings.

It is not know how much the wall would cost.

Frankston Environmental Friends Network chairman David Cross applauded the idea.

“It would be a benefit. It lightens the harsh landscape of the city and it’s more attractive,” he said.

“It makes an improvement with the heating and cooling systems those buildings have in place.

“It helps to beautify some of the large, concrete walls.”

Peninsula Field Naturalists Club president Coralie Davies agreed a green wall would have cost-saving benefits for heating and cooling buildings.
