Black Hill residents and the wider community are invited to have your say on a Draft Landscape Management Plan for Binney Reserve.

The draft plan was available for feedback here from Thursday 26 November to Monday 14 December. The survey has now closed. Further updates will be provided in early 2021.

The City of Ballarat will also hosted a drop in session at Binney Reserve on Thursday 26 November.

Earlier in 2020 an independent audit of the reserve recommended the removal of pine trees due to an unacceptable risk to public safety. Two trees which were assessed as an immediate risk were removed in October, but no further works are planned at the site until the landscape management plan is finalised.

The draft plan proposes to replant the site with local native trees, shrubs and ground covers.

Replanting with local native species will benefit the biodiversity of the Black Hill area and return vegetation types that were there before the gold rush era.

The landscape management plan will be finalised after all feedback has been considered.

After viewing the draft plan, you can leave comment via the survey below.
