Help us protect our beautiful environment and create a more sustainable Shire! Share your ideas and help shape a new Environment and Climate Change Strategy!

Following the Climate Emergency Declaration that was made in 2020, Wingecarribee Shire Council is developing an Environment and Climate Change Strategy that will create a shared reference for working together to protect our unique environment and respond to the complex challenges of climate change.

The Strategy will set long term direction and specific action for improving the health of our local waterways, enhancing air quality, minimising waste, protecting our native flora and fauna, and building our resilience and sustainability through renewable energy. The Strategy will also look at ways for dealing with the impacts of climate change and manage risks of natural hazards such as bushfires, floods, and drought.

Everyone has a role to play and Council is keen to collaborate closely with the community, key stakeholders, environment groups, local businesses, and all levels of government to bring to life the community’s aspirations of being leaders in sustainable living and making sure our special rural landscapes and natural environments are productive and protected for generations to come.
