The Northern CART (Catchment Action Round Table) was held on Wednesday 20th September 2017 at Romsey Community Hub.
14 people from eight community groups attended, as well as City of Whittlesea, Hume City Council and the Wurundjeri Council.
Throughout the day, participants talked about what they are interested in achieving in the catchment and how the potential to collaborate could support this.
Stephen Curwood from VicRoads (north-west metropolitan area) also presented information on VicRoads roadside asset protection and enhancement works and gave groups a great insight into how they can work together.
A great deal of interest was generated in an expansion in the Greening the Maribyrnong work that the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA and its partners have been doing along the Maribyrnong River. All groups indicated an interest in collaborating on the project.
The next CART will focus building greater awareness around the local remnant biodiversity assets and how we can connect these ‘patches’ together.
CARTs are supported by the PPWCMA, through funding from the National Landcare Program and the Victorian Landcare Program.
