Maroondah Vegetation Review

Development phase for a vegetation strategy for Maroondah.

Now that consultation on the Issues and Options Paper has closed, we shift into the strategy development phase for planning the future for Maroondah’s vegetation and biodiversity.

The feedback received from the community on the Issues and Options paper is very much appreciated and will help inform the development a vegetation strategy structured around a framework of the key outcomes we hope to achieve. (see the feedback summary here)

The vegetation strategy will establish Maroondah’s vision for our vegetated future and Council’s approach to support this vision whilst meeting Maroondah’s growing

Development phase for a vegetation strategy for Maroondah.

Now that consultation on the Issues and Options Paper has closed, we shift into the strategy development phase for planning the future for Maroondah’s vegetation and biodiversity.

The feedback received from the community on the Issues and Options paper is very much appreciated and will help inform the development a vegetation strategy structured around a framework of the key outcomes we hope to achieve. (see the feedback summary here)

The vegetation strategy will establish Maroondah’s vision for our vegetated future and Council’s approach to support this vision whilst meeting Maroondah’s growing housing and infrastructure needs.

It is expected to include short, medium, and long-term initiatives in areas such as practical vegetation management and conservation, policy and planning controls, advocacy, education, and support to our community. It will build on the base of evidence collected to date including the information provided in the Issues and Options Paper, the six Fact Sheets, the expert studies, and the feedback received from both community and internal stakeholders.

The future extent and condition of our vegetation and the many benefits it provides is influenced by factors such as climate change and urban growth, but also by the decisions and actions of many. Council, other public agencies, residents, property and business owners, developers, community groups, and others all play important roles in protecting, improving, and restoring Maroondah’s vegetation through the choices they make. The strategy will focus on Council’s role, but is likely to provide guiding principles that others can follow themselves.

We will be asking for community views and feedback on a draft version of the strategy later this year - now anticipated to be available in August 2019 - with the aim of releasing a final version of the strategy late in 2019.
