Reported to DELWP at May 14, 2020 Blackwood Weeds Forum.
DELWP response: As at June 24, 2020 DELWP was applying for funding under the Good Neighbour Program for a three-year program to tackle this problem. The Blackwood and Barry’s Reef Landcare Group has provided a letter of support for this application.
On August 11, 2020 DELWP workcentre operations co-ordinator Adrian Balharrie wrote to Blackwood Landcare: “We are still waiting to get the green light on these projects. I think there is a high chance we will get these projects up, since we had such great support from your group and Melbourne Water.”
On October 14, Mr Balharrie reported that funding had been successfully secured for this project.
