Draft Green Warrnambool plan

News Article Date: 
Tuesday, 5 June 2018

Green Warrnambool sets a new vision for the city: that Warrnambool will be the most sustainable regional city in Australia.

This is a high-level, overarching strategic document that guides a suite of new and existing strategic plans and actions.

The plan contains six goals which are:

Zero Warrnambool – we will have zero net greenhouse gas emissions.
Adaptable Warrnambool – Council and its community will be prepared and resilient in a changing climate.
Wise Warrnambool – we will send zero recoverable waste to landfill and reduce litter and pollution.
Naturally Warrnambool – where we will enhance and protect our environment and biodiversity.
Blue Warrnambool – we will ensure our water is protected, conserved and unpolluted.
Green Warrnambool – our green spaces will be thriving and connected and our food sourced locally.
The actions are a combination of policy and planning documents, data collection and on-ground implementation actions with over 50 Council led actions and 40 community actions.

The targets are ambitious and it is acknowledged that meeting them requires a cultural shift in how we will live and develop as a city.

Green Warrnambool has been developed in conjunction with the Warrnambool 2040 Project and the Environment and Planning Advisory Committee and will supersede the previous Environmental Sustainability Strategy 2008-2013.
