Help us prepare a new Green Wedge Management Plan (GWMP) to guide the future of our iconic rural areas, the ‘Green Wedge’, which covers some 91 per cent of the Shire.

Over the last year, many of you have shared your ideas and knowledge to help us understand - What is the best way for us to manage Nillumbik's Green Wedge, now and in the future?
