The Draft Yarra Strategic Plan is here!


After extensive consultation with community, Traditional Owners, landholders, local councils and stakeholders, we now have the first ever plan to holistically protect and enhance the entire Yarra River corridor - The draft Yarra Strategic Plan. You can have your say on the plan by 22 March 2020 before it’s finalised.

Delivering the plan is a Victorian Government commitment to protect our treasured Yarra River, Birrarung, and its parklands for future generations.
