You're invited to share your feedback on the updated Environment Strategy.

The updated strategy(DOCX, 15MB) / updated strategy(PDF, 2MB) outlines Council’s commitment to acting on climate change and sets out priorities for creating a more sustainable shire.

The previous Environment Strategy was adopted in 2016 and since that time, Council has delivered most of the strategy’s actions such as preparation of a Biodiversity Strategy, Climate Change Action Plan and Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy.

The new suite of emerging priorities highlighted in the updated strategy include:

  • Responding to the climate emergency
  • Sustainable transport
  • Waterway health
  • Biolinks and habitat links
  • Private land conservation
  • Waste minimisation
  • Community engagement and partnerships.

Submissions have closed.

Council is currently reviewing the feedback received which will inform changes to the Strategy.

The final Strategy will be considered by Council at a Scheduled Council Meeting later this year.
