Environment Sustainability Strategy
Moira Shire Council recently developed a Environment Sustainability Strategy (ESS). This strategy aims to improve how Council operates internally in relation to environmental sustainability and externally with the community in prioritising and undertaking environmental sustainability activities.
The ESS is proposed as a key strategic document to provide clear guidance and direction to the Moira Shire Council in relation to its environmental sustainability priorities and policy positions. It has been developed to deliver a proactive and integrated approach to environmental sustainability and guide future benchmarking, measuring and monitoring of Council’s environmental performance.
The draft ESS was made available to the public through a period of consultation and the comments received are currently being reviewed. A final version of the draft ESS was presented for consideration at the 17 September 2012 Council meeting, at which it was endorsed.
