Environment Strategy

The Environment Strategy sets out a principle-based approach to how we protect biodiversity, reduce water use and improve water quality, minimise waste, decrease energy use, and ensure development is environmentally sustainable, all within the context of a changing climate.

Importantly, Council has also set a responsible target of net zero greenhouse emissions by 2035.

This Strategy informs the Council Plan and challenges Council and the communities in the Shire to become leaders in environmental management and sustainability. It will guide our planning and decisions and provides strategies to ensure we achieve our goals.
