Council, 27 March 2008

Sustainability is a word that is used often, yet means different things to different people. This Sustainability Policy seeks to clarify what the Council means by the term sustainability.

This will enable Council policies and strategies to adopt a consistent point of reference for the term and for the related concepts and principles to be incorporated with more consistency into Council activities and decision making.

This Policy aims to embed sustainability into our Council and community and to help make sustainability “the way we do things around here.”
