Tuesday, February 07, 2023

Residents, businesses, young people and industry leaders have all helped shape our environmental priorities for the next 10 years, as the City of Whittlesea moves towards becoming a net zero emissions city by 2036.

Council’s new Sustainable Environment Strategy 2022–2032 and Climate Change Plan 2022–2032 outline a clear plan to tackle climate change and environmental sustainability through a range of projects and initiatives, including:

  • Working with Traditional Owners
  • Delivering annual tree-planting programs
  • Supporting local businesses to be leaders in sustainability
  • Starting a habitat connectivity study to better understand our biodiversity.

Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said Council is committed to tackling the environmental and climate change issues we face, while also supporting the community and local businesses.

“We know our community is passionate about the environment and together we look forward to creating a liveable and sustainable environment for generations to come.”   Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson
