Victoria Engage

Here we go again …

This is about Strategic Bushfire Management Planning

“Strategic bushfire management planning is a State Initiative to try to reduce bushfire risk. The process of developing a plan brings together land and fire managers, communities and other key stakeholders to develop a common understanding of bushfire risk across the landscape and determine appropriate management actions to reduce that risk.”

Timeline ( so far )

  • Sept 2018 – Oct 2018 – set objectives

Haining Farm Design Phase 2018

Development Haining Farm – Public Notice

A big part to convince the local community  to accept the developments around Haining Farm was the arument that the project would be a boost for the local community, with a cafe and visitors centre.

This is now stated as being “Currently Unfunded”.

So, we will end up with 59ha additional Fuel Load in the already Fire prone Upper Yarra Valley.
