As the caretaker of Melbourne’s waterways, we understand how valued Stony Creek is to the local community, and how passionate people are about its recovery and rehabilitation - which is why we involved the community to create a plan.

The local community contributed their ideas, aspirations and priorities to support the long-term rehabilitation and future protection of Stony Creek. Their insights, values and recommended actions were used to create the plan.

The draft plan was publicly released in early July 2019 for a four-week period to seek feedback from the community. Comments were used to prepare the final plan to ensure it aligns with community expectations, values and aspirations. The final Stony Creek Rehabilitation Plan was officially launched on 8 September 2019.
