Green Wedge Management Plan Review

Image of city and hills

Nillumbik Shire Council is asking the community to help it prepare a new Green Wedge Management Plan to guide the future of our iconic rural areas, the ‘Green Wedge’, which covers some 91 per cent of the Shire. We’re asking: ‘What is the best way for us to manage Nillumbik’s Green Wedge, now and in the future?’

Thank you to everyone in our community who shared their thoughts and experiences of the Green Wedge through the survey, community workshops, by sharing their stories and photos, and by popping in to our Coffee and Chat sessions.

Everything we heard through the community engagement phase has been summarised in a report that will be shared publicly and given to the Community Panel. The report is now available on this site.

The Community Panel is made up of 40 randomly selected members from the community. The panel will sit for five days from August to October to hear about and consider the many issues impacting the management of the Green Wedge. The panel will make recommendations to Council that will inform the preparation of a draft Green Wedge Management Plan. You can see some examples of other community panels / citizen juries under "Important Links" and "Document Library".

Expressions of Interest to observe Panel Day 5 on 20 October are now open. Please complete the form below to register your interest in attending.

Keep up to date with what's happening by checking the regular updates on "Latest News" below.

Further community consultation on the draft Green Wedge Management Plan will take place over a 3 month period from December 2018 until late March 2019. Council will consider submissions from the community, and the final plan will be presented to Council for adoption by June 2019.
