Our Green Wedge
The Shire of Nillumbik contains land both inside and outside of what the Victorian Government has defined by law as the Urban Growth Boundary. The non-urban areas of Nillumbik that sit outside of the boundary form our green wedge.
The Nillumbik Green Wedge is protected from development by law and managed via the Nillumbik Council Green Wedge Management Plan. It covers 91 per cent of the total area of the Shire. This includes Kinglake National Park and land used for agriculture, conservation, tourism and rural living.
