Climate Change and Environment
We are working together to be Australia’s most liveable regional city. To achieve this goal we must protect our unique natural environment .
We support community groups with their projects that help to protect and restore the natural environment with our community grants program .
We manage urban stormwater, issue permits for septic tanks and encourage water conservation in planning and construction projects as part of our sustainable water management program .
We preserve our local natural environment by educating landowners, embracing offset programs, eradicating weeds and more as part of our native vegetation, forestry and land management .
We practice what we preach and have been rolling out an organisation wide program to reduce our carbon emissions .
We are a member of Eco Buy , which means we purchase products that have less impact on the environment, and integrate sustainable purchase practices into everyday operations.
