Master Environment Strategy

The Yarriambiack Shire Council is developing a Master Environment Strategy. Our goal is to set a clear direction that will guide our planning and decision-making to ensure we meet community expectations regarding environmental sustainability in the coming decade.

The strategy will cover three key areas:

  • Waste, recycling and resource recovery
  • Climate action – adaptation, mitigation and renewable energy
  • Environment – water, land and biodiversity

We have prepared a fact sheet on each of those topics, outlining the issues that we need to consider and the potential actions for each topic. Prioritising those actions is a key element in developing the strategy in order to ensure we meet the expectations of the community in our approach to developing this strategy.

We value feedback from the community and have released a detailed survey seeking community input on key items of waste, environment, and climate action. The survey is available in hard copy or online. Hard copies will be available and can be returned to the council office, libraries and at the Words on Wheels van. There will also be a series of face-to-face engagement activities, including the Budget Roadshow, over the next six weeks. The dates for these activities will be shared as they occur.

The survey is open for feedback until Friday June 14, 2024.
