Protecting the Hanging Rock precinct
Hanging Rock Strategic Plan
The 50-year Hanging Rock Strategic Plan was endorsed on 27 September 2018.
The Strategic Plan builds on previous work to prepare a master plan for the site. Through extensive consultation, it was identified that the values of the site were such that it deserved a more strategic approach following which the 50-year Strategic Plan has been prepared.
A master plan is still required and is one of the actions in the Strategic Plan. This work will now be better informed by the Plan that provides a vision for future uses of Hanging Rock and its immediate surrounds for the next 50 years.
Extensive consultation with the community, the Traditional Owners; the Dja Dja Wurrung, Taungurung and Wurundjeri, and Macedon Ranges Shire Council over the past three years has contributed to the development of the plan.
The 50-year plan pays respect and recognition to the Traditional Owner’s cultural values and practices after a century and a half of Crown land management.
To deliver on the Plan, several implementation actions are required over a twenty plus year period. An implementation plan will be produced through workshops and further consultation with Traditional Owners, Council and other key stakeholders.
