Council is asking the community to help it 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.

We’re asking: What is the best way for us to manage Nillumbik's Green Wedge, now and in the future?

At the Ordinary Meeting of Council on 26 March 2019, Council endorsed the timeline for the draft GWMP which will now be considered at the June 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting. This allows Council time to consider feedback on the draft Bushfire Mitigation Strategy prior to receiving the draft GWMP. Public consultation on the draft GWMP plan will now take place over a six week period, from 1 July to 11 August 2019.
