Planting out Haining Farm – Public Notice
Despite the local community being against planting out Haining Farm, as well as going against the intentions of the recommendations of the Royal Commisson, Park Victoria will continue to implement.
We will end up with 59ha additional Fuel Load in the already Fire prone Upper Yarra Valley.
Against the recommendations of the Royal Commission, there is NO Fire Break ( 100 m is required ) between the revegetation and the houses of Don Valley.
Due to the increased Fire Risk, the houses ate the edge of the township will likely get a Bushfire Management Overlay, will be more difficult and costly to get insurance of house and content, and in many cases it will be too costly to rebuild the same house after a fire.
