Cessnock City Council is seeking community input via online survey to inform the development of a draft Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy.

A key action from Council’s Climate Change Policy, the Strategy will provide a framework for improving environmental sustainability and action on climate change in the Cessnock Local Government Area, and identify key actions Council will take to achieve the goals it sets out.

Cessnock City’s General Manager, Lotta Jackson said understanding the environmental issues most important to the community is the first step in the process, followed by identifying the actions required to mitigate the impacts of climate change. 
“Council is very committed to protecting and enhancing the natural environment and rural character of the area.
Resident feedback and input from community stakeholders will help to capture community sentiment and allow us to identify priorities most important to the region,” she said.
Following the survey, residents will have the opportunity to attend community workshops to further inform the draft Strategy.
Visit the Have your say project here and take the survey, open until Friday 10 December 2021.
