Environment Strategy

Council’s draft Environment Strategy is now available for community feedback (read the Draft in the document library on the right).

The purpose of this Environment Strategy is to provide a 10 year overarching framework for environment, sustainability and climate change initiatives.

The Environment Strategy recognises that Noosa will continually strive for a higher standard in the way we manage and live in our environment. It includes clear strategies, targets and intended outcomes that Council seeks to achieve, in partnership with the community and other management agencies.

The Environment Strategy will help prioritise investment and deliver an integrated and collaborative approach to achieving excellence in environmental management.

The Strategy is structured under 4 themes:

  • Biodiversity
  • Waterways, Wetlands and Coasts
  • Sustainable Living
  • Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience.

The Strategy identifies a range of Strategic Outcomes under these four themes. Council is looking for feedback on these outcomes to help inform the development of a more detailed Implementation Plan.

The implementation plan will be developed with the final version of the Environment Strategy and will set out key actions for the first couple of years. It will also include a framework for monitoring and evaluating the success of the strategy.
