The Victorian National Parks Association, with support from the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, has developed design guidelines to support native grasslands in urban areas. We are now seeking feedback on the draft guide ‘Start with the grasslands – Design guidelines to support native grasslands in urban areas’.
Our urban grasslands are endangered. The guidelines are aimed at practitioners, the development industry, land managers, Governments authorities and other interested parties.
