Environment and Sustainability

Banyule’s Environmental Sustainability work is guided by the Council Plans, ‘Planet’ objectives, which are to:

  • Protect and enhance our natural environment
  • Conserve water and improve stormwater management
  • Lead in planning for, and responding to, climate change
  • Avoid waste generation
  • Be environmental stewards.

The Wildlife Corridor, Sustainable Homes and Communities, ReThink Centre and Positive Charge programs are examples of the many projects currently being undertaken to achieve these five focus areas. Further details are available in the four year strategic plans, currently under revision. To receive updates on these plans, including future exhibition of the plans for public comment, please register for our E-Newsletter here.
