Environment and sustainability
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.
