State of the Environment

State of the Environment (SOE) reporting is a "Report Card" on the condition of our environment and natural resources. Council prepares these reports each year, as a measure of what initiatives have been undertaken in our local area in response to environmental issues, and to assess new emerging environmental trends.

Council is required to prepare a comprehensive SOE report every four years. The comprehensive report provides an overview of the environmental performance of the community, industry and government. Every other year Council produces a snapshot report with updating trends, issues and progress on initiatives.
