BOUNDARIES MAPS – UPPER YARRA VALLEY:
The Yarra Waterways Group has been asked by DELWP to define our preferred boundaries for the entire Investigation Area. As many are aware YWG wants the Upper Yarra Valley from the Healesville Koo Wee Rup Road at Woori Yallock upwards to Millgrove removed from the proposed State Emblems Park.
This supports the original position outlined by the Environment Minister Gavin Jennings and Monbulk MP James Merlino on 18 November 2010, when the proposal for the State Emblems Park was announced.
Our proposed boundaries differ from those put forward in the 2011 proposed Yellingbo Investigation Area, which form the basis of Yarra Ranges Council’s submission to Minister D’Ambrosio adopted at the Council Meeting of 13 September 2016.
YWG believes that the Yarrabridge Conservation Trust property at Woori Yallock, the Healesville Sanctuary and Coranderrk Nature reserve at Badger Creek / Healesville, the Picnic Hill reserve at Wandin North should all be included in the State Emblems Park.
The boundary from Launching Place to Hazeldene follows the forest line west along property boundaries including all Hoddles Creek Reserves within the Park.
