The biodiversity found in the Macedon Ranges is unique and highly significant. The varying topography, range of altitudes and localised climatic patterns results in many diverse ecosystems hosting a wide range of native plants and animals. The shire is fortunate to have extensive native vegetation and rich biodiversity present on public and private land.
The Macedon Ranges Biodiversity Strategy establishes a shared vision between Council, the community and other stakeholders for the protection and enhancement of biodiversity values across the shire. It identifies a number of policy and planning initiatives well as priorities for community engagement, on ground action and monitoring change.
Council is seeking your input and feedback on the draft strategy until Sunday 21 October 2018.
