About the strategy
The strategy encompasses all of Council’s community outcomes, focusing on the synergies between strategies in areas of transport, urban design, land use, wellbeing, recreation, open space, the natural environment, infrastructure and risk management.
Environmental sustainability presents a direction for Council to ensure the city is in a sound state for both current and future generations.
Three high level goals have been identified to promote this:
- leadership - an increased level of responsibility from Council
- protection - Council as the facilitator for change, and
- enhancement - the city as a whole begins to actively improve our environment.
Council will be leading by example by ensuring policies and processes comply with this strategy as well as ensuring that the appropriate knowledge and skills are available to all.
