Volcanic reserves need a plan

THE Corangamite community has been encouraged to attend discussions on the future of Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf reserves.

Corangamite Shire environment project officer, Kristie King, said the Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf Issues and Opportunities Paper was the first stage in the development of a new management plan for the popular reserves. 

“Once developed, the new plan will help to ensure that future management of the reserves remains in keeping with community expectations,” she said. 

“The paper has been developed from the issues and opportunities identified by the Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf Stakeholder Reference Group.” 

Ms King said the management plan would set out a new vision for the reserves and it was important for residents to have their say. 

“This is an opportunity for the community to have input into the future of Mount Leura and Mount Sugarloaf,” she said. 

Residents are invited to attend one of two discussion sessions at the Killara Centre, Camperdown next Wednesday. 

The hour-long sessions will run from 10am and 6pm and will give community members an opportunity to provide feedback on the paper and discuss issues relating to management of the reserves.
