MEMBERS of the Baw Baw community have been encouraged to respond to the Baw Baw Shire’s draft Open Space Maintenance Standards document.

First published in the 29 May 2015 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.


Special meetings have been held in Drouin, Erica, Trafalgar and Warragul to inform the community of the proposed standards.

The standards will dictate how open spaces such as parks, sports ovals, bushland and other assets are maintained.

Baw Baw Shire mayor Debbie Brown said the standards would allow the community to be aware of council’s actions.

“The key aim is to strike the right balance between providing value for money services at a level that the community is prepared to pay,” Cr Brown said.


All members of the community will be able to lodge a response until 17:00 on Tuesday 30 June.

Submissions can be made in writing to Urban Operations, Baw Baw Shire Council, PO Box 304, Warragul, VIC 3820.

The draft standards can be viewed on the council website.

Email submissions will be accepted via or can be made online.
