This engagement has now closed. Thank you to everyone who has contributed. A summary of feedback received will be posted on this page in mid August.


The South Geelong Landfill closed in 1990. The site is currently used by the City to store clean fill from local road and drainage projects, and to assist in the recycling and reuse of concrete and other products.

Stakeholder input and a site analysis has informed a draft landscape plan for the site, which we would now like your feedback on.

The proposed plan includes improved landscaping, to reduce dust and improve stormwater management and landscape amenity, and a new perimeter fence, with shade cloth and fill mound. As sections of the fencing and mound are completed, the site will be reseeded as grass to reduce dust. The outside edge of the mound will then be mulched and planted with drought tolerant indigenous trees and grasses to screen views into the site.

Works will be carried out in multiple stages, with the initial fencing and mound works scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021. Fencing will be progressively extended to Hede Street as funding becomes available. Revegetation with local indigenous species will be done over the following years.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the concept plans (see below) and any suggestions you may have for indigenous plants or shrubs you would like to see planted on this site. Follow the page (by clicking on the +Follow button in the header) to stay up to date with this project.
