LCC Rivers and Streams Special Investigation (1991)

This report contains the full text of the Land Conservation Council's final recommendations for the Rivers and Streams Special Investigation. These provide an ongoing framework for the use of rivers and streams in Victoria, subject to subsequent government decisions. The recommendations in the text have been edited to reflect government variations and amendments at the time of approval, and subsequent changes.


  • Draft
  • In progress
  • Completed


The report text has been edited to incorporate government decisions on the recommendations made by Order in Council dated 7 July 1992, and subsequent formal amendments.

The recommendations are categorised into Victorian heritage rivers, essentially natural catchments, representative rivers, other river values and stream frontage reserves. These are based upon the scenic, recreational, cultural and nature conservation values of rivers and streams.

Note that recommendations for stream frontages, beds and banks replace earlier public land water frontage recommendations for most of Victoria.
