People often ask Friends of Nillumbik questions about Council Planning, Green Wedge and other issues. We do not claim to be experts but we have been helping the Community with Council and VCAT issues for over 20 years now so have some knowledge which may be useful.

To better inform and support the community we have set up a Q & A service on our Facebook page. We are all volunteers and will do our best to answer queries within a 48 hour time frame. If confidentiality is preferred you can always send us a private message on our Facebook page or email us at
