A strong voice and strong support for Victorian Landcare
Parks Victoria is developing a state-wide Land Management Strategy (LMS) to guide and inform future planning and decision-making across the parks estate. The Strategy is intended to respond to key challenges - including climate change, population growth, changing community needs, increased visitation, invasive pest species, accessibility requirements and more.
Parks Victoria is now inviting communities and stakeholders to provide their feedback on the draft Aspiration and Guiding Principles that will form the basis of the Land Management Strategy
