Environment and Sustainability

banyule smaller file.jpg

Banyule has intrinsically valuable natural and built features. Our open space - bushland, riparian areas and parklands - supports a diversity of plants and wildlife such as the threatened Eltham Copper Butterfly, while residential areas provide key corridors and habitat for wildlife.

Our energetic and committed Environment Team aims to deliver great initiatives while maintaining healthy relationships between the community and the environment in the ongoing process of achieving environmental sustainability.

The Wildlife Corridor Program, Sustainable Homes and Communities Program, ReThink Centre, Waterwatch and Climate Change Programs are examples of the many projects currently being undertaken.
