Protect. Create. Live.

We're excited to share with you the draft Protect. Create. Live – Northern Beaches Environment and Climate Change Strategy 2040, our plan for a healthy and diverse natural environment that is respected, supported and celebrated. The draft strategy is the result of extensive research and consultation. It will help us deliver the Protection of the Environment and the Environmental Sustainability community outcomes within Shape 2028 – The Northern Beaches Community Strategic Plan.

The commitments we have chosen for this draft strategy are ambitious and our aspirations even more so. They aim to drive the urgent and ongoing action required to address the challenges our environment faces.

The draft strategy is set out into three main directions: Protect. Create. Live.

We’ve divided the draft strategy into five sections and made it interactive in the tiles below. You can read and comment directly in each.

Alternately you can download the full strategy and provide a submission or comment in the form below.

Submissions close Sunday 27 October 2019.
