Help 'future proof' Newport Lakes Reserve

Hobsons Bay City Council invites you to comment on the (Draft) Newport Lakes Reserve Conservation and Improvement Plan.

Developed in association with the Friends of Newport Lakes, the (Draft) Plan outlines environmental values and challenges and provides a ten year plan to protect and enhance the Reserve. We would like to hear from you - have we got it right?

Your feedback will be used to review and update the Plan for Council endorsement. Once finalised, the Plan will act as a blue print for future conservation and development works at the Reserve.

But the conversation does not end there! Stay tuned for further community engagement opportunities in 2022 (and beyond) as we begin designs for the redevelopment of Pavey Park and more. Click the '+follow' button above to receive a notification for future community engagement opportunities.
