Draft Maroondah Vegetation Strategy

You are invited to share your thoughts on the Draft Maroondah Vegetation Strategy

Built on the base of evidence we have collected throughout the Maroondah Vegetation Review process - including information provided in the Issues and Options Paper, Fact Sheets, expert studies, and also feedback received from our community and stakeholders, Council has now developed a draft Maroondah Vegetation Strategy.

The evidence shows that the Maroondah community highly values our vegetation and the benefits that it provides. It also highlights that biodiversity is in decline, and although our tree canopy across Maroondah remained largely unchanged from 2011 to 2016 - the increase in hard surfaces and declining shrub cover places it at risk of decline in the future.

To help us achieve 'vegetation-based' outcomes for Maroondah, the draft Maroondah Vegetation Strategy proposes several key actions that are designed to protect, improve and add vegetation. These actions include:

  • Proposed amendments to current planning scheme controls
  • Funding and advocacy
  • Specialist research and data analysis
  • Community education and information sessions
  • Innovation and collaboration opportunities

With the Maroondah Vegetation Review process now complete, your feedback on the draft Maroondah Vegetation Strategy is important as it will help inform the final Maroondah Vegetation Strategy.

(If you would like to know more about the evidence based approach please see - Fact Sheet 7 “The journey so far…” Also available is the feedback we received on the Issues and Options Paper and how that feedback has been incorporated into the draft Strategy - see Vegetation Review Issues and Options Paper Feb 2019 - annotated feedback summary report. Both documents can be found in the document library on this page.)
