Community Meeting - Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who came along to our information session on 11 September 2019.

The Creswick Town Hall played host to nearly 100 people who were keen to have a conversation about the Trails Project.

The Creswick Trails Team is finalizing the draft trails alignments (where the trails will go) as we speak. Before we can make that public, we need to obtain permission from the land managers as the Creswick Forest is not owned by Council. We are collaborating with the land managers - Parks Victoria, DELWP, Hancock Victoria Plantations and Central Highlands Water- and hope to be able to share more detail about the project shortly.

We are working to the following indicative timeline:

  • November 2019 - Approval from all land managers obtained.

  • December 2019 - Community Information Session

  • December 2019 - Release of map showing where the trails are proposed.

  • December 2019 - Application for planning permit for construction of Trails.

  • February 2020 - Community Information Session

  • March 2020 - Construction tender released.

  • April/May 2020 - Community Information Session

  • Mid - 2020 Construction Begins pending contractor availability

NOTE: This timeline is indicative and may need to change to accommodate the planning process.

If you want to receive email updates on the project, please reach out to Alison, Project Manager at
