Draft Yarra Environment Strategy: Towards Local Sustainability

Draft Yarra Environment Strategy: Towards Local Sustainability

Yarra’s draft Environment Strategy: Towards Local Sustainability is on public exhibition until 15 August 2008.


The strategy outlines objectives for 10 key action areas which are:

Community Engagement
Open Space and Urban Bushland
Greenhouse Emissions
Water
Waste
Transport
Built Form
Food
Air Quality

Council Planning and Operations.
The draft strategy includes a detailed action plan, which outlines tasks and projects to be undertaken over the next four years to transform Yarra into a vibrant, liveable and sustainable inner city municipality.


The action plan includes documented programs and targets to ensure that the Strategy is more than words – and is in fact a working document to be implemented by Council in partnership with the community.
You can have your say on the draft Strategy and Action Plan by:


Completing the feedback form, tearing along the perforated line, taping or stapling the form to make a reply paid envelope, and mailing it to Council by putting it in a letterbox (no stamp required)
