Management Plans

Councils must prepare Green Wedge Management Plans because the land and conditions in each green wedge vary.

Based on the needs of the local community, each Green Wedge Management Plan identifies the:

  • values and features
  • preferred future land use
  • environmental and natural resources that should be protected
  • type, scale and form of change in the green wedge
  • how those changes will be managed and facilitated.

The Victorian Government helps councils prepare Green Wedge Management Plans by providing targeted funding, technical advice and guidance.

A Planning Practice Note has been prepared to guide the development of Green Wedge Management Plans:
