This project produced a management plan for the Hamilton Community Parklands (Bandicoot Enclosure).
It considered the economic, environmental and social outcomes of this facility for the broader Southern Grampians community.
The plan encompassed all management issues including: threatened species, pest plants and animals, fire track and fence maintenance and public access and interpretation to name a few. The plan also detailed responsibilities for each of the stakeholders involved in the parkland management to ensure that future actions are mutually beneficial to the broader Southern Grampians community. The final document was presented at a public forum in consultation with all stakeholders, and is available as a CD ROM at RMIT University.
Considerable community consultation was undertaken by Tim Burnard as the Handbury Fellow for the Eastern Barred Bandicoot Recovery team; with both statutory bodies such as the Shire Council, Country Fire Authority and other interested parties/people identified in the first stage.
