Protecting Critically Endangered Grasslands

Tabled: 17 June 2020


This audit looked at whether the management of native vegetation clearing is protecting state and nationally significant native vegetation in the extended urban growth boundary areas. We focused on the Melbourne Strategic Assessment. Under this program, Victoria committed to establishing two grassland reserves by 2020 to offset native vegetation lost due to development in Melbourne’s extended urban growth boundary. We looked at how the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is implementing this program and Parks Victoria’s ongoing management of the reserves.
