Today, Nillumbik is one of 12 green wedges around metropolitan Melbourne. Green wedges are established, planned and protected by the Victorian Government’s legislative and policy framework. Because there is substantial variation between green wedges, the government asks each council to prepare and regularly review a local Green Wedge Management Plan (GWMP). This is the Shire’s second GWMP and replaces the plan adopted in 2010. It is high-level and brings together new actions and Council’s ongoing strategies to guide funding, resourcing and service delivery for the green wedge. It will be supported by annual action plans, including regular monitoring and evaluation.
