Draft Sustainability Strategy 2035 - Have Your Say!

Submissions closed

Thank you for your feedback. The consultation has now closed. On 26 June 2023, Council adopted the final Sustainability Strategy. You can also read the Engagement Report here.

The City of Salisbury recently released a draft ‘Sustainability Strategy 2035’, which is a plan to guide the Council’s promise of becoming more environmentally sustainable.

Being environmentally sustainable is part of everything we do: from the way we live, eat and get around, to the way we build our cities, collect rubbish and look after our parks and reserves.

In this Strategy, we are looking at how we can responsibly manage and maintain our land and the environment. This means we are not causing more harm or damage to the Earth, but rather taking care of it for years to come.

How can you help?

You can help us shape the new actions in this document, before it is finalised and endorsed by Council. Have your say on biodiversity, carbon emissions, climate resilience, waste and recycling, and water use.

We will be consulting on this Strategy from 1 April - 7 May 2023.

Entries can go in the running to win one of ten $20 VISA gift cards!
Terms and conditions for this competition can be read here.
