This consultation closed on 23 December 2021. The project team are currently reviewing the feedback received and will be reporting the consultation findings back to the community and Council with a recommendation on the draft strategy.
Following community consultation in March and April 2020, we developed the draft Green Areas and Rural Strategy (GARS).
The draft strategy covers:
- values to protect
- land usage directions for the next 20 years.
This is your chance to have your say on the vision and actions relating to green wedge land and significant landscapes in Knox.
