The FGGW was Incorporated in April 2012 to preserve and manage Green Wedge land. • As a result of community and Knox Council opposition to the initial plans for development in 2010, two VCAT cases ensued and the subdivision of the 77 acre property was reduced from seven to five house lots. • Permission to build on the floodplain was denied. Ten acres were donated for the creation of a public reserve & handed Knox council in 2014. • Knox Council and Melbourne Water manages this with input from the Friends of the Glenfern Green Wedge. • Dr Graeme Lorimer produced a formal Landscape Plan in 2015 and in 2016, Melbourne Water began the process of weed removal on Ferny Creek. In 2017 Knox Council undertook major revegetation plantings in the riparian area of Ferny Creek. • During the campaign to save the Green Wedge, the FGGW established a pledge campaign to raise funds in what proved to be an unsuccessful attempt to buy one or more lots of the subdivision, to be added to the area of public reserve. As the reserve developed the nature and activities of the FGGW evolved from a political lobbying group fighting the development, to a more traditional “friends group” working on revegetating, weeding, protecting and cultivating indigenous flora and fauna, managing the river corridor and caring for the aboriginal heritage sites on this unique property. • The property is situated on Ferny Creek in the spectacular setting of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, Gilmour Park Retarding Basin, Glenfern Vallley Bushlands and Lysterfield Valley.forming part of an extensive wildlife corridor and supports rare and endangered flora and fauna (details can be found on the page on this website: “About Glenfern Green Wedge” The Glenfern Green Wedge property is one of many Green Wedge areas throughout Metropolitan Melbourne currently under threat and the FGGW remain committed to fight for the broader Green Wedge land surrounding Melbourne. • Running sheet – Judy-Ann & Co. 3mdr 97.1fm 16 Oct 2023. -2- • • These areas create vital wildlife corridors, provide agricultural land and open space for communities, protect environmentally sensitive areas and remnant indigenous vegetation, and function as the “lungs of Melbourne”. • In Knox, there are currently eight Green Wedge zones ( in Chandler, Dobson, and Taylor Wards). • • In 2011 the FGGW made submission to Knox Council requesting the inclusion of a Green Wedge Management Plan in the budget, and eventually a management plan was included in the 2012-13 budget. • A management plan is essential to ensure that properties such as the Glenfern Green Wedge are managed appropriately and protected for future generations to enjoy. • In 2017 the FGGW lodged a Freedom on information requesting details of the sewerage system of the first housing development ensuring it complied with VCAT environmental conditions. The FGGW will continue to fight for the best environmental outcomes in the Green Wedge and the reserve.
