Proposed Regional Parks
Continuing a long tradition of open space planning for Greater Melbourne, the Victorian Government has committed to delivering three new metropolitan parks in Melbourne’s growth corridors to ensure the future liveability for communities in these emerging areas.
The Minister for Planning appointed the Regional Parks Standing Advisory Committee in November 2017 to provide advice to the Minister about the suitability of changes to planning provisions to facilitate the delivery of regional parks in Victoria.
On 21 March 2018, the Minister for Planning referred the following regional park proposals:
- Clyde Regional Park
