Bushfire management strategies for the Grampians Region are being reviewed. This process will help determine where risk reduction activities such as planned burning take place. Planning and managing the risk of bushfire in the Grampians region is an ongoing and shared responsibility. The goal is to design a long-term plan that reflects what communities value and want to protect in their towns and favourite places.
In Phase one you asked us to focus on protecting people’s lives from bushfire. You also told us that you valued major infrastructure, plants and animals and water supply facilities. We have used this to develop alternative fuel management strategies and we invite your feedback on those below.
Planning for the West Wimmera area is being considered as part of the Barwon South West region plan.
