Community Engagement

Working with our community, who are the users of the Reserve, is integral to our work. We are now seeking your feedback on our draft Issues and Opportunities Paper, which outlines the emerging ideas, issues and opportunities for the Reserve.

We see community engagement as a key tool to help us develop a well-researched and robust Land Management Plan that addresses the needs of both the community and stakeholders and ensures the Reserve meets existing and future needs.

Your feedback and ideas will help guide us and provide input into how the Reserve looks and is utilised in the future.



In August 2019, we asked the community for their ideas about the issues and opportunities that exist for the future use and development of the land.

Feedback from the engagement activities were collated and summarised into the below five themes:

  • Environment
  • Culture, community and events
  • Open space and recreation
  • Access and movement
  • Management

Based on these themes, and our community and stakeholder engagement so far, we have now developed a draft Issues and Opportunities Paper and are seeking your feedback. Your input will help inform our next steps and guide and shape the drafting of the Land Management Plan.

To have your say:

Submissions can be sent to or PO Box 89, Glen Huntly, 3163
