Feedback on protecting our green areas closing soon

We have extensive green wedge land that is important for agriculture, rural living, biodiversity and recreation. Share your feedback on our draft strategy to protect and enhance these irreplaceable areas by 23 December.

Our community highly values our green wedge land and significant landscapes for its beautiful views and various land usages. It is important that we protect these natural areas into the future for positive environmental, cultural and health outcomes for our community.

The draft strategy sets out values to protect, and provides land usage directions for the next 20 years. Precincts covered in the strategy are:

  • The Basin Rural Landscape
  • Lysterfield Valley and Hills
  • Lysterfield Quarries and Surrounds
  • Dandenong Creek Valley
  • Healesville Freeway Reservation and Surrounds

If you live in a precinct, or enjoy visiting these areas, be sure to have your say on its future direction. 

The draft strategy proposes specific actions for each precinct to protect its unique environmental, and social values. Proposed actions to improve the precincts include habitat restoration, protecting view lines and cultural heritage, supporting agriculture and tourism, walking and cycling connectivity, and improved access to parklands.

Visit our Have your say website for further information on the draft strategy and to share your feedback.

Join us at one of our engagement sessions this Saturday. This is your chance to find out more about the draft strategy from our team.
