Feedback wanted on climate plan
Bass Coast Shire Council is looking for community feedback on the next steps of its Climate Change Action Plan 2020-2030.
Council has declared a climate emergency and is currently working with the community to develop the Climate Change Action Plan. The Plan will guide the community towards net-zero emissions while facilitating climate adaptation and urban resilience over the next 10 years.
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, said the Bass Coast community has already participated in the early development stages of the Action Plan, by completing a survey or attending community workshops.
“We are now reporting back to the community on the proposed draft actions, that were developed following the initial consultation phase,” Cr Tessari said.
“These draft actions have been developed to guide Council and the community towards net-zero emissions and building a climate resilient Bass Coast.”
Some of the draft actions developed include:
- Community actions: recommended emissions reduction and climate change adaptation actions for households, businesses and farms.
- Council actions: emissions reduction and adaptation actions for Council's corporate operations, and actions through which Council can support the community's efforts.
To view the draft actions, and to provide feedback to help Council prioritise and refine these actions, visit www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/climateaction. The survey will be open until Sunday, 12 July.
