Master Environment Strategy Survey

The Yarriambiack Shire Council is developing a ten-year Master Environment Strategy that will set a clear direction to guide planning and decision-making. The strategy will also ensure that the council meets 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.

Over the next five weeks the council is seeking feedback on those areas that have been identified as the most critical for council to take some action on. Fact sheets on each of those topics, outlining the issues that need to be considered and the potential actions for each topic. Prioritising those actions is a key element in developing the strategy in order to ensure that the expectations of the community are met.

“We value feedback from the community and have released a detailed survey seeking community input on key items of waste, environment, and climate action.” Chief Executive Officer, Tammy Smith stated, “We also know that the community values the environment they live in, so it is important that people take the time to do the survey and provide council with some guidance on those priorities.”

The survey is available in hard copy or online. Hard copies will be available at the council office, libraries and at the Words on Wheels van. There will also be some face-to-face community engagement opportunities in the coming weeks – these will be promoted each week.

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