Help shape the future of our Green Wedge

Help shape the future of our Green Wedge

Tuesday, June 01, 2021

The City of Whittlesea is calling on residents to have their say and help shape the future use of our Green Wedge areas.

About 60 percent of land in the municipality is protected by the Victorian Government from further urban development – an area three times the size of Phillip Island.

Known as the Green Wedge, these areas include our much-loved national parks, forests, reservoirs and nationally significant plants and animals as well as farms.

Council is reviewing its 10-year plan for how the area is managed and wants to hear from the community.

Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said Council wanted to hear first-hand what people most value and love about the Green Wedge areas.

“We know these spaces are not just environmentally significant but provide our community with opportunities to enjoy recreation and leisure time,” she said.

“Council is committed to protecting our Green Wedge but also updating our plan to ensure we best represent what our community values.”

“We’ll consider all thoughts and ideas to help us prepare the plan and then we’ll check back in with our community to make sure we’ve captured your thoughts,” Ms Wilson said.
