LCC Melbourne Area District 1 Review (1987)

This report contains the full text of the Land Conservation Council's final recommendations for the Melbourne Area, District 1 Review. These provide an ongoing framework for public use of land in the Melbourne area, subject to subsequent Government decisions. The recommendations in the text incorporate those for the western part of the LCC's original Melbourne Study area investigation in 1977 where relevant, and have been edited to reflect government variations and amendments at the time of approval, and subsequent changes.

  • In progress
  • Completed


The report text has been edited to incorporate government decisions on the recommendations made by Order in Council dated 23 August 1988 and formal amendments. Subsequent changes may not have been incorporated. Where this review refers to the 1977 Melbourne Area Final Recommendations, for completeness recommendation wording and Crown descriptions have been reproduced.

The recommendations are grouped under major headings, such as Parks and Marine Reserves, Reference Areas, Wildlife, Water Production, State Forest and Timber Production and so on. Key recommendations are for the Organ Pipes National Park, Werribee Gorge State Park, and additions to the Brisbane Ranges National Park and Lerderderg State Park.

VEAC’s Central West Investigation (2019) subsequently covered part of this area (see Previous VEAC Investigations on this website under Work we do).
