G'day All,

Because of the decline of native forests and grasslands, roadside vegetation
is recognized as very important for the survival and well being of our
native fauna and flora. Several bird species, such as Grey-crowned Babblers
have become dependent upon it for their survival in certain districts, such
as Nth Victoria where I live.

There are real pressures at present in this (and no doubt other districts)
upon these remnant vegetation patches. It has been sad to see the ongoing
destruction and degradation of various patches of vegetation on local
council as well as state roads.

I have been discussing this matter with some people of the local council,
but am finding it difficult to know what exactly Victorian State government
legislation requires it own bodies and local councils to do re roadside
vegetation. Is there anyone who could advise me of what that legislation is
and with whom I may be able to discuss the matter more fully?
