Chinaman Creek Landcare Plan

Time for Your Input

The latest draft of the Chinaman Creek Landcare Plan was released at a pleasant pre-Christmas afternoon tea on December 5. Printed copies of the plan were distributed to those who attended and digital copies are now available on-line  for those who could not make it (simply click on the following link to download a copy)  Chinaman Creek Valley Community Plan _ DRAFT_V.01

We now need to hear what you think. 

The plan is still in draft form. It has lots of information about the valley – its history, vegetation, the current state of farming and environmental health and initial project ideas from those who responded to our survey. We now need to decide how to implement the plan. First we need to refine and elaborate the detail in the plan:

  • Do you have perspectives and views that are not currently articulated in the plan?
  • Do you have any particular project ideas that can be added to the plan?
  • How do you see the plan being implemented?

The current draft plan is just the starting point. We would like to use it as a base to support the creation of tangible, funded projects in 2013.

If you have comments or suggestions please email these to us by January 12 at

On January 19, we will hold another get together to develop specific project plans and initiate appropriate funding. We will send further details about the time and place soon. Please put the date in your diary. 

Let’s make 2013 the year for the Chinaman Creek valley renewal!
