About the Policy
The Policy sets out Council’s commitments and approach to integrating sustainable design (ESD) principles into the design, construction, operation and maintenance of Council owned and/or managed infrastructure.
Increasing the environmental performance of Council owned and/or managed infrastructure will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and aid in the efficient use of water and energy.
Both Council and the community have a role in improving the environmental performance of community infrastructure.
The revised Sustainable Infrastructure Policy was presented and adopted by Council at the September 2017 Council Meeting.
