Help us create a sustainable and climate resilient future for all

City of Whittlesea residents are invited to have their say on Council’s draft Sustainable Environment Strategy and Climate Change Plan which will shape our environmental priorities over the next ten years.

The draft long-term strategy and plan outline the City of Whittlesea’s approach to achieving the environment we want for our future and will create a roadmap for a sustainable environment and action on climate change. The draft Sustainable Environment Strategy Action Plan 2022-2024 sets out the first two-year’s commitments to delivering the Sustainable Environment Strategy, and integrates actions that address climate change, biodiversity, city forest, green wedge, water, waste, recycling and community empowerment.

Strategy and Plans

The City of Whittlesea has developed 3 key documents which are available to read or download below.
  • Climate Change Plan 2022 - 2032

    This plan outlines Council’s role in minimising its own emissions, and supporting the community to take climate action to mitigate and adapt to climate change to 2032. It presents an analysis of trends impacting our climate and environment, is informed by feedback from our institutional stakeholders and wider community, and contributes to the Whittlesea 2040 ‘key directions’ for the Sustainable Environment Goal.
