Environmental Plan - Council calls for Community Input

Waratah Wynyard Council would like to announce that an Environment Plan will be developed for the municipal area. Council are excited to be able to announce this on World Environment Day; the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment.

Environmental changes are already impacting us in Waratah-Wynyard and questions and concerns have been raised about the future. Council would like to partner with the community and take a leadership role in the region to de-risk climate change and future proof a range of local social, economic and environmental values.

The Environment Plan will focus on 6 key elements; proactive natural resource management, economic future-proofing, Council’s role in sustainability in its own activities, community resilience - enabling communities to transition and adapt, planning for and mitigating climate impacts on our built environment as well as any other community concerns that arise in consultation.

Waratah Wynyard Council Acting Mayor Dr Mary Duniam said “Council is excited to invite the community to join us as we develop the municipalities’ first Environmental Plan for the future. Our municipality is home to a diverse range of natural assets which are critical to the region’s future. We are already seeing impacts to the region such as coastal erosion, bushfire and changing rainfall patterns.”

Interested participants are invited to sign up by 26 July 2019 and they will be added to an Environment Plan Interest Group database. In the coming months, those who have registered their interest will be invited to participate in a range of focus groups and surveys and will be given opportunities to provide feedback on certain topics.

The Environmental Plan is anticipated to be developed in partnership with the community over the next 9-12 months.
