Community Action

What Can We Do?

The City of Salisbury prides itself on its presentation and its importance in encouraging a community full of drive, commitment and spirit. Sustainability is not just about the environment, but also about building a lasting and strong community which feels supported by its locality. Local Government plays an integral role in building a sustainable community and building links to encourage community action.

Council strongly supports a range of Community Action initiatives. Visit the pages below for more information:

  • The Catchment Care Program
  • Control of Stormwater Pollutants
  • Biodiversity education, schools and volunteer programs

Opportunities also exist for the community to make a difference on a day-to-day basis, to take positive steps toward achieving a sustainable future.
