Taking climate action – help inform Council’s new Climate Action Plan

Nillumbik Shire Council is preparing its new Climate Action Plan, and is seeking community input to help guide the direction of the new Plan.

The Climate Action Plan will guide and inform activity across Council’s services and facilities. It will also inform how Council works with the community to achieve meaningful climate action.

Community input is critical to the development of the new plan to help us better understand the Nillumbik community’s priorities for responding to climate change.

Council has launched a survey to find out how the Nillumbik community understands climate change; what actions Council should prioritise in responding to climate change; and what the Nillumbik community can and is already doing to respond to climate change.

The survey will help guide the development of the new Climate Action Plan which will outline what Council will do to reduce its carbon footprint, build resilience and adapt to changes in climate, while supporting our community to do the same.

The online survey, which will be open until 20 December, is the first step. There will be further opportunity for community consultation before the Plan is finalised in the second half of 2021.

Council has also commissioned a telephone survey of randomly-selected residents to ensure it obtains a broad and representative view on this issue from across the Nillumbik community.
