VIC Start With The Grasslands

VIC Start With The Grasslands

Retention of native grasslands in urban areas is a growing concern for urban development and design. There are a number of issues that can jeopardise their inclusion in a final development proposal or their survival if they are retained.

‘Start with the Grasslands', written by landscape architect Adrian Marshall and published by the Victorian National Parks Association, provides advice for the design and management of native grasslands within an urban context and forms the basis of this breakfast discussion. 

We have brought together speakers drawn from different stages in the development of land that adjoins or is near to native grassland to explore these issues and how to resolve them. Exploring their role in the process of land development and the possible tensions with retention of grasslands, your questions will also shape this lively discussion. 

Speakers will include representatives from the: Metropolitan Planning Authority, a local council, a landscape architecture consultancy and a developer. Adrian Marshall will respond to the speakers, describing how ‘Start with the Grasslands’ can be used to facilitate retention of native grasslands and their successful management in urban areas.

MC for the event is Elly Russell (landscape architect, Taylor Cullity Lethlean). Matt Ruchel, from the VNPA, will officially launch the book.

20 copies of ‘Start with the Grasslands’ will be available for purchase at $10 a copy.
