Consultation has concluded

The Draft Climate Change Risk and Adaptation Strategy outlines how Council and partners will work towards a more climate adapted Maroondah. This draft strategy establishes a plan of action for the next four years enabling Council to prepare for the long-term risks of climate change. It will guide Council’s efforts to integrate climate change risk management and adaptation.

About the Strategy

The draft strategy draws on a solid evidence base heavily informed by stakeholder engagement and the latest climate science including projections from the Bureau of Meteorology and the national science body, CSIRO, as well as vulnerability information to inform climate change adaptation planning.

Input was also obtained from the Eastern Alliance for Greenhouse Action (EAGA) of which Council is a member. The development of the Draft Climate Change Risk and Adaptation Strategy (for consultation) was informed by extensive community consultation and input from a wide range of Council service areas, in particular, Risk Management.

At its meeting on Monday 19 March 2018, Council resolved that the Draft Climate Change Risk and Adaptation Strategy be placed on public exhibition from 21 March 2018 for four (4) weeks. The community was invited to provide comment and feedback until Wednesday 18 April 2018.
