Plans and projects

Community engagement is a vital part of planning and managing parks and reserves in Victoria. Commenting on draft park management plans, strategies and other reports is one way of engaging with park planning and improving the outcomes for parks and reserves.  


Parks Victoria invites all members of the community whether as individuals or members of organisations to comment at key stages in a project. Links to current plans and projects are listed below.
