The Final Report on VEAC's Yellingbo Investigation was publicly released on Wednesday 7 August 2013.

In August 2011 the State government requested VEAC to investigate the biodiversity and ecological values of public land within the Yellingbo investigation area, identify threats to these values and to make recommendations relating to management to conserve and enhance these values.  The Terms of Reference are available here.

The first submission period closed on 20 February 2012.  These submissions assisted in the development of the Draft Proposals Paper which was released for public comment on Thursday 6 December 2012.  The second submission period closed on 25 March 2013.  These submissions are available to view by using the Submissions button in the navigation panel to the left.

Investigation area

The Yellingbo investigation area lies east of Melbourne in the Upper Yarra Valley. It is located between the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Ranges National Parks.  The towns of Yellingbo, Woori Yallock, Launching Place, Yarra Junction, Hoddles Creek, Cockatoo, Emerald, Monbulk and Seville are within the boundary of the investigation area.

Interactive mapping

Users now have a choice of viewing a PDF map or a more detailed interactive web map showing the final recommendations for public land use.  The interactive web map is available here and enables users to view the map, and information associated with the map, more easily than with a PDF.  This is achieved by incorporating into the web map panning and zooming tools, bookmarks that zoom to sites with final recommendations, pop-up window that display information about land use parcels, and annotations that change in size as the user zooms in or out.

Map A of the Final Report is available in PDF format here.
