Environmental Action Plan

The Environmental Action Plan 2014-2018 was endorsed by Council on 28 April 2014.

It describes in detail what Council will do over the next four years to bring our community closer to the environmental vision contained in our Community Strategic Plan 2014-2018 , namely to “Thrive in Clean Green Futures”.

The Plan contains an overview of Council’s past achievements and prioritises future actions, with a focus on reducing Council’s footprint, protecting and enhancing environmental assets under Council’s care and control, fostering sustainable development and collaborating with our community.

The Plan is divided into four chapters:

  • Protecting our water resources
  • Enhancing biodiversity
  • Progressively addressing climate change
  • Living local

Progress against the Plan will be publicly reported on an annual basis.  A review of the Plan will be undertaken in 2018 with a further 5-year plan developed for the period 2019-2023.
