Kingston’s Green Wedge
Kingston is finally seeing the end of the waste industry in our community, with former landfills in Kingston’s Green Wedge now being transformed into parklands and open space.
It’s taken years of lobbying by Kingston Council, but residents in our northern suburbs will soon celebrate the end of odour, dust and trucks in their neighbourhoods.
October 2018 marks the 3-year anniversary since Kingston Council and the Victorian Planning Minister introduced special planning protection (the Green Wedge A Zone C143 Amendment).
The change outlawed any new landfills opening in our area and gave Kingston’s Green Wedge a bright future.
In the past the area was home to over 30 active landfill sites. Thankfully the old landfill sites are now approaching the end of their life and and are being replaced by green spaces.

The changing face of Kingston’s Green Wedge... Landfills are almost a relic of Kingston’s past and are being replaced with new parklands and sporting facilities for the community to enjoy.
New parklands will add to the many activities already on offer in the Green Wedge including horse riding, golf, walking and cycling, fishing, go karting, kite flying and much more... We are getting on with the job of delivering the Chain of Parks as set out in the Sandbelt Open Space Strategy and Kingston’s Green Wedge Management Plan.
