The Local Government Toolkit has been designed for Councils interested in establishing sustainability projects, based on the knowledge and experience gained from the Bathurst, Orange, Dubbo (BOD) Alliance Inspiring and Integrating Change Project.
The Toolkit provides an overview of three specific “on-ground” sustainability projects:-
- Dubbo City Council’s Victoria Park Precinct Renewable Energy Project,
- Orange City Council’s urban constructed wetland for stormwater harvesting and
- Bathurst Regional Council’s Biodiversity Management Plan & Urban Drainage Reserve Vegetation Link.
Information is also provided about the BOD Alliance Councils’ joint Greenhouse Gas Inventory and the development of an innovative regional Distributed Energy Plan.
Through a variety of practical, on-ground projects, Inspiring and Integrating Change aims to motivate and inform other regional councils, organisations and individuals to create projects and implement policies which support sustainable development into the future.
If you would like further information on this project please contact Council's Environment Section on 6333 6511.
This program has been assisted by the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust.
