Brimbank Green Wedge Management Plan

Melbourne’s green wedges make an important contribution to the liveability, economic strength and environmental health of Melbourne. The Melbourne 2030 vision for green wedges is to encourage their proper management and to protect them for non-urban uses. The plan provides a clear direction for future land uses and management aimed at achieving sustainable management of the area and the protection of environmental, biodiversity, cultural heritage and scenic landscape values of the area. The Sunbury Green Wedge is one of 12 Green Wedges identified in the Melbourne 2030. The Sunbury Green Wedge covers the non-urban areas of the City of Hume, surrounding urban Sunbury and Bulla, and extends into a small part of Brimbank. The Brimbank Green Wedge Management Plan provides a vision and set of objectives for the Brimbank component of the Sunbury Green Wedge. The Brimbank component of the Sunbury Green Wedge (the Brimbank Green Wedge) includes the land known as the “North of the Calder Non-Urban Area”. While relatively small, the Brimbank Green Wedge contains a number of environmental assets as well as areas used for horticulture, recreation and low density housing. The purpose of the Brimbank Green Wedge Management Plan is: o To establish a vision and set of objectives for the Brimbank component of the Sunbury Green Wedge shared by all levels of government, land owners, land managers and the community. o To identify a set of policies, programs and actions that support the ongoing sustainable management of the Brimbank Green Wedge.
