VNPA’s submission into the Dandenong Police Paddocks Reserve/Nerre Nerre Warrene Master Plan.

The Dandenong Police Paddocks are a pivotal part of the corridor of natural vegetation and green spaces leading from the heavily urbanised suburbs of Dandenong up to the Dandenong Ranges. They allow animals such as Powerful Owl and Grey Headed Flying Fox to move through the landscape safely and help the movement of genetic information of plants and animals.

The corridor, of which the Police Paddocks are a vital part, provides much needed respite from the surrounding urban environment that is dominated by asphalt and cement, with the beautiful stands of Yellow Box woodlands and open green space.
