Whitehorse City Council is considering a proposal to become the future land manager of the Healesville Freeway Reserve.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) contacted Council to seek an expression of interest to manage the 35 hectare parcel of land that runs from Springvale Road, Forest Hill to Boronia Road, Vermont. It is reserved for conservation, recreation and leisure.
Whitehorse Mayor, Cr Andrew Munroe said Council is always interested in exploring partnership opportunities with other levels of government to increase open space and community facilities for our existing and future population.
“We are actively considering the proposal to become land manager of the Healesville Freeway Reserve and will keep the community informed about Council’s possible options,” Cr Munroe said.
DELWP is the interim land manager of the reserve.
