The Blackburn Lake Surrounds Study reviewed the Blackburn area to ascertain its relative landscape character significance.

The purpose of the study was to:

  • Review the area identified in the Strategic Framework Plan (of the Whitehorse MSS) surrounding the existing Significant Landscape Overlay (SLO) - Blackburn
  • Investigate the urban and vegetation characteristics of the area
  • Identify areas of special vegetation and landscape quality
  • Ensure that the Overlay boundaries reflect the areas which have the appropriate balance between vegetation and built form

The recommendations of the study were implemented as part of Amendments C046 and C050.
