Council is calling for residents’ input as it prepares to draft a new Environment Strategy for Noosa Shire.

Environment and Sustainability Director Kim Rawlings says the new overarching strategy will guide priorities, future direction and what’s most important for Council in managing and protecting the environment.

To start the process, Council wants to hear what residents regard as the biggest environmental issues facing Noosa.

The community can comment online during July and August at Council’s YourSay Noosa website.

“Council currently undertakes a wide range of environmental initiatives such as biodiversity conservation of particular species, pest management and habitat restoration,” says Ms Rawlings.

“We also have projects to improve our waterways and catchments. These benefit our fisheries resources, water quality and the Noosa River. Plus we are considering how we can reduce emissions, increase energy efficiency and ensure sustainable living outcomes.

“The new Environment Strategy will set a clear path and help prioritise all of the existing and future environment projects, and initiatives and assist Council and the community to ensure the most important environmental issues receive the focus and resources they need,” Ms Rawlings said.

“Before we draft the new Environment Strategy, we’re asking residents to tell us what they think Noosa’s most important local environmental issues are. This feedback will help determine Council’s future direction for looking after the local environment,” Ms Rawlings said.

Council is also meeting with community groups and organisations at workshops, forums and focus groups to gather their priorities and ideas.

Council aims to prepare a draft Environment Strategy and make it available for further community comment later this year.
