Sustainability Strategy 2024-2041

The Southern Grampians Shire Council Sustainability Strategy 2024-2041 will be a key strategic document that council will implement over the coming decade and beyond. This document will shape the way both council and the community transition to our shared vision for a sustainable future.

We would like the community to help us to create the strategy via two methods:

1. Provide feedback on this discussion paper before March 30, 2024. You can email before March 31, 2024.
2. Complete this survey before March 31, 2024. The results will feed into the draft strategy.

The feedback collected will be incorporated into the creation of the Sustainability Strategy. Once developed the draft strategy will be advertised for community consultation before it is presented to councillors for final adoption.

Council will also be delivering a series of pop-up engagement sessions across the Shire over the coming months, sessions to be announced shortly.
