Environmental Action @ Council

Council’s Environmental Action Plan

Welcome to Ballina Shire Council’s Environmental Action Plan.  The Environmental Action Plan (EAP) documents Council actions that aim to improve our local environment through improving Council’s own operations and activities. The aim of the EAP is to provide guidance to the elected Council and the community on the types of actions that are taking place within the organisation.  Whilst Council has always been active in improving environmental outcomes across its areas of responsibility, this is the first time these actions have been comprehensively documented.

How can I Contribute?

The EAP is a working document that is reviewed on an ongoing basis. This process provides an opportunity for Council staff, Councillors and community to regularly contribute to the plan by providing good ideas aimed at increasing the environmental sustainability of our Council and our shire. Community members wanting to contribute their ideas can do so by emailing greenbea@ballina.nsw.gov.au with the subject heading Environmental Action Plan.

Ballina Environmental Action (BEA)

The Green Bea will be keeping the Ballina Shire community up to date on Council’s environmental initiatives and progress on Council’s Environmental Action Plan. Look out for BEA buzzing about in various Council media, such as Community Connect and local media.
