Why Green Wedges are important

On 15 June, WRA submitted to the Western Plains South Green Wedge Management Plan.

WRA’s submission articulates various concern, including the potential loss of green wedge land, of emerging contaminants in recycled water and of land-banking. 

Our submission also articulates that many of the proposed actions of the plan can be greatly assisted by funding environmental community groups to recognise and support their advocacy, educational work and environment outcomes. 

WRA identifies that green wedges themselves need proclaiming via education and promotion so that the waterways and landscapes of the western plains can be protected for generations to come.
