Ideas for the future of the creek.

Forest Creek between Best Motors and Barker St needs some improvement.  The Landcare Group has a proposal to revitalise this stretch by recreating some of the natural features of the former creek. This includes establishing a more visually attractive winding pool-filled channel between the heritage sandstone walls.

We have now produced a brochure to describe the issues and the proposal.  This is based on work done by Associate Professor Ian Rutherfurd (University of Melbourne).

Have a look at this, and tell us what you think by emailing the group.
