Much of the eastern half of Manningham (more than 4,000ha largely east of the Mullum Mullum Creek) is designated a special ‘Green Wedge’ area for the protection of natural and rural values.
Maintaining the Green Wedge is a high priority, as expressed through several policies and protections in our planning scheme.
We have adopted the Green Wedge Infrastructure Design Guide which aims to ensure sympathetic engineering works in this environmentally sensitive area.
We provide educational programs to our community including:
- field trips
- walks aimed at protecting native vegetation and preventing the proliferation of pest related damage.
Living in the Green Wedge
Living in a green wedge is a bit different to living in a suburban area. There are different responsibilities for residents living in this part of Manningham. Download the documents below to understand what is required.
If you live on a property that is within our designated Green Wedge, you may be eligible to apply for assistance to preserve your bushland.
