Protecting our Environment

Greens Councillors have a long history of standing up for the environment - often when nobody else will.

The air we breathe, the water we drink and the earth we walk on can’t be taken for granted. Developer interests are often put before the needs of our environment and our community. If we want to protect our natural spaces, we need more Greens on Council.

If you want to elect a voice for the environment on Council, vote 1 Greens.

The Greens will:

  • Fund bush regeneration projects and plant more native species
  • Ensure the protection of local wildlife, and prioritise the preservation of habitat for threatened species
  • Make sure new developments do not threaten environmentally sensitive land
  • Aim for a 40% tree canopy in all LGAs which do not have that canopy cover, and commit to retaining the extent of canopy cover for the few Councils which exceed 40%.
