Environmental Sustainability Strategy

Tweed Shire Council has a strong emphasis and a proud history of managing its operations in a way that is environmentally proactive.

The environmental impact of Council's activities and operations is significant and we want to establish a comprehensive approach to getting our own 'house in order'.

Council already has more than 20 active strategies and policies in place that guide our efforts to preserve Tweed’s environmental values.

This draft strategy consolidates what environmental sustainability means across Council’s activities, sets out high-level lead actions and highlights a set of decision making criteria to help prioritise our efforts so we can achieve the best environmental outcomes, deliver the best value to the community and make the best use of available resources. Learn more.

While this strategy focuses on internal Council decision making and operations (and not environmental sustainability in the Tweed more broadly), it's important that our overall direction reflects community expectations, so we're inviting you to give us some feedback on the draft.


Feedback is invited until 8am on Monday 23 March 2015.
